TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A man allegedly seen in a surveillance video from a residence on Tucson's northwest side was located and taken into custody.

Deputies were investigating an incident in which two people, a man and a woman, were seen approaching the residence before the video camera is disconnected.

After the video was released to the public, tips came in that led police to believe that Simon Peter Lopez, 33, and Christina Marie Paulson, 31, are the suspects in the video.

Deputies say Simon Lopez was taken into custody yesterday.

According to a news release from the Sheriff, the vehicle in the video, a Toyota FJ Cruiser was stolen in a separate incident. The vehicle has been recovered by deputies.
