Police arrested a suspect who admitted to stealing to support his meth habit on Wednesday. Officers said they thought Dulan K. Dinkel looked suspicious when he appeared to be looking into house driveways while riding his bike. Dinkel allegedly parked his bike, pulled out some sort of tool from his pocket and went into a storage room of one of the homes near Cherry and University Drive in Mesa. Police saw Dinkel leave with a vacuum on his handle bars and later confirmed with his mother that the vacuum was at her home. The suspect told police he steals about 60 times a week to pay for drugs because he doesn't have a job. Dinkel was arrested and faces charges of possession of burglary tools, dangerous drugs and drug paraphernalia.
