ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police are looking for a man in connection with the burglary of several self-storage lockers.

On Dec. 28, Oro Valley Police were called to Arizona Self-Storage on North Mavinee Drive, where more than $60,000 of victims' personal items were taken.  

OVPD Criminal Investigations Unit determined that brothers Elmer and Jack Upchurch may be involved in this crime. 

Due to the Upchurches having ties to local gangs, police called in Arizona DPS's Gang Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission (GIITEM).  Authorities arrested Elmer Upchurch at a local pawn shop, which led to the discovery of additional stolen property in the 13000 block of North Lon Adams.  

Jack Upchurch is still wanted for questioning in this case, and is currently wanted for another crime not affiliated with the burglary.  If you've seen him, call 911 or 88-CRIME.

Elmer Upchurch, who is in custody on unrelated charges, will be charged at a later date for felony theft in excessive of $20,000, three counts of third degree burglary, and trafficking in stolen property.
