18-year-old Jordan Baldwin was arrested on March 23, in connection to a series of calls to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, authorities said.
Baldwin and a 16-year-old boy were arrested for 1st degree burglary and trespassing.
The calls, which all came in after midnight, reported suspicious people in a residential garage and running through backyards in the Magma Ranch subdivision, said Matt Clark, a Pinal County Sheriff's spokesman.
Deputies searched the area and were unable to immediately locate the two suspects. Several hours later, a caller reported two suspicious persons matching the homeowners' descriptions, hanging out at a nearby gas station.
Baldwin was armed with a loaded Ruger pistol and the 16-year-old was intoxicated. During an interview, Baldwin admitted to stealing the pistol from a vehicle in Magma Ranch a few hours earlier.
