A second man has been arrested on suspicion of 29 separate felony offenses in connection with a Tucson burglary ring.

Detectives arrested 21-year-old Pablo Cecena Sunday at a home in the 7700 block of East Golf Links Road. He was booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of one count of first degree burglary, nine counts of second degree burglary, one count of third degree burglary, one count of auto theft, nine counts of theft, seven counts of trafficking in stolen property, and one count of prohibited possessor of a firearm, said Sgt. Maria Hawke, spokeswoman for the Tucson Police Department.

Cecena and three others are suspected in at least eight burglaries, four of them committed between Oct. 10 and 12. Shortly after each burglary, stolen items were taken to area pawnshops.

Police arrested Bianca Martinez, 20, on Nov. 6. She was jailed on a count of second degree burglary and two counts of trafficking in stolen property.

Police are searching for two other men connected to the burglaries. Detectives know the identities of the other men, but they are withholding the names while the investigation continues.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
