SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A man accused of committing more than one-hundred burglaries in Salt Lake City has been charged with several felony thefts and burglaries.

Police say 22-year-old Michael Allen Hobbs admitted to committing the burglaries and even showed officers where they took place. They say Hobbs was selling the items to support his two-hundred dollars to three-hundred dollars-a-day drug habit.

Hobbs was arrested almost two weeks ago when an officer approached him on Parleys Canyon Boulevard.

According to court documents, police found a pistol in his bag as well as a pair of gloves, a radio and flashlight.
