Henderson Police and Metro Police have arrested a man in connection with a series of home burglaries in both Henderson and Las Vegas.
According to police, 36-year-old Michael Hoffman was arrested March 25 after crime scene analysts connected him to a Las Vegas burglary scene through DNA. His DNA profile was already in the system because of an extensive criminal history.
After he was arrested, police searched his home and found evidence linking him to home burglaries around southern Nevada. They also found his red Ford F-150 pickup truck, which witnesses reported seeing in the areas of the burglaries.
Police say Hoffman would enter through the back of the house and grab whatever he could find in 20 to 30 seconds. He stole items that were small and easy to carry, like jewelry and cash.
