A Miami resident who served time for theft in the past stole approximately $63,000 worth of equipment off boats in a storage facility in St. Johns County.

Mizael Alfonso, 45, was arrested last Thursday and charged with multiple felonies in connection with a string of boat burglaries, according to the Miami Herald.

Investigators traced a vehicle seen in video surveillance footage to Miami and discovered the stolen equipment being sold online. That led them to Alfonso, who reportedly admitted to stealing the items. He was arrested and booked into a Miami-Dade jail where he is being held on $170,500 bond. In 2009, Alfonso served two years for grand theft.
