Thursday, August 07 2014

An Escambia County, Florida, man is back behind bars after stealing more than $140,000 worth of items from local residences and selling them to pay his federal probation costs.

Michael Collins, who was on probation for bank robbery, allegedly broke into homes through unlocked doors and stole jewelry, cash, laptops and medication. Collins later sold the items at a local flea market. Police were able to identify and locate Collins through security footage shot at one of the homes. Almost $15,000 of the sold items have been recovered by local police.

Collins is now being charged with burglary, grand theft, criminal mischief and petty theft.
