CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- Police in southern Utah have recovered about 200-thousand dollars in money and jewelry from a man accused of burgling properties across the West.

Gary L- Deveraux, of Big Lake, Alaska, was arrested earlier this month in connection with burglaries in both Cedar City and St. George.

His girlfriend, Cherie Ann Boggess, was arrested a day later.

Inside their motor home and Deveraux's car, police say they found jewelry, money and guns.

Cedar City Police Detective Mike Bleak says investigators believe the suspect committed burglaries throughout Alaska, Canada, Montana, Colorado and -- quote -- "everywhere in between."

Victims began showing up at the Cedar City police department Monday to identify their possessions. Because possible victims span several states, the recovered property will be put on a database that other agencies can access.
