Man indicted for multiple home burglaries in Abilene


ABILENE, Texas - An Abilene man was indicted Thursday for a string of house burglaries.

Stephen Elizondo, 38, is accused of breaking into and burglarizing five homes between December 2016 and January 2017.

Between the five homes, court documents say Elizondo stole tens of thousands of dollars' worth of jewelry, electronics, and a gun. One victim lost more than $23,000 worth of items.

Police were able to track Elizondo down after finding his fingerprints at more than one home and discovering many of the stolen items had been pawned by him.

Elizondo was arrested on Jan. 20. He has been indicted on five counts of burglary and one count of theft from an elderly person.

Elizondo is currently being held in the Taylor County Jail on bonds totaling $168,000.
