Police are looking for a man who broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home to steal, possibly more than once, an official said.

In mid-January, Manuel Chavira, 45, broke into the home of his ex-girlfriend and stole a watch that he immediately pawned, Lt. Kara Riley, spokeswoman for the Oro Valley Police Department, said in a news release.

Chavira, who was seen by a neighbor, used a keypad entry to break in through the garage of the home in the area of North La Cañada Drive and West Calle Concordia.

“It is suspected Chavira may have stolen and pawned other items from his ex-girlfriend throughout the relationship, to include a wedding ring,” Riley said.

Chavira is wanted on four felony counts of trafficking in stolen property and has a $5,000 bond.

He is 5-feet-6-inches tall, weighs about 150 pounds and has short brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about Chavira should call 911, 88-CRIME or the OVPD at 229-4900.
