Authorities in Nebraska have arrested a Thornton man accused of burglarizing three jewelry stores in Loveland and Westminster.
According to a release from the Loveland Police Department, 20-year-old Miguel Angel Montoya burglarized the Zales and Helzberg Diamonds stores at the Promenade Shops at Centerra in Loveland in August by using a vehicle to smash through the front doors. He is also accused of burglarizing the Shane Company in Westminster and stealing a motorcycle in Denver.
Loveland PD detectives are working with other law enforcement agencies in the Denver area to see if the smash-and-grabs are connected to other recent burglaries.
He's being held at a jail in Hastings, Nebraska on unrelated charges.
