Glendale police have arrested an El Mirage man they believe is a suspected serial burglar.  Officer Tracey Breeden says 52-year-old David Womack, who was dubbed the “Cashbox Bandit,” was taken into custody for a rash of burglaries in medical offices and other businesses that have occurred over the past two months.

Breeden says “detectives believe the suspect is connected to over 60 burglaries in several cities,” including Surprise, Peoria, Glendale, Phoenix and Scottsdale.  Breeden says “undercover detectives were able to observe (Womack) burglarize a local bakery and cafe in the city of Surprise and he also used his 11-year-old stepson as a lookout during the burglary.”
