LAKEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Police in Colorado said they busted a burglary suspect accused of stealing from houses while wearing a GPS monitoring ankle bracelet.

District Attorney George Brauchler said Brandon Campbell, 27, was wearing the GPS device as a condition probation for another case when he allegedly burglarized 15 homes in Lakewood and Greenwood Village, KCNC-TV, Denver, reported Tuesday.

"I don't think that there's any doubt at all that this guy is the last guy picked on the prison Brain Bowl team," Brauchler said.

Deputy Prosecutor Chelsea Koch said the ankle monitor was present at every one of the alleged burglaries.

"I would say it's a prosecutor's dream to have GPS," Koch said. "That's an excellent piece of evidence to put him at every single burglary at the time it was burglarized."

KCNC-TV said Campbell was on probation for a case involving the attempted theft of a navigation GPS device.
