McKees Rocks police arrested a man on Monday for stealing jewelry and tools from his neighbors' homes.

Michael King, 30, of McKees Rocks was charged with burglary, receiving stolen property, possession with intent to distribute heroin and other charges.

Police said the investigation focused on King after police in Robinson reported that King had recently sold a large amount of jewelry to a local gold dealer.

Police executed a search warrant at King's home where they found jewelry, insurance policy paperwork and mechanic's tools that had been reported stolen. Police also recovered a large package of heroin.

King is in the Allegheny County Jail on $20,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for next Tuesday.
