KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Prosecutors say a Kansas City man charged with committing 34 residential burglaries was linked to the crimes by a GPS in an ankle bracelet he was wearing because he was on parole for burglary.

Sixty-four-year-old Roy E. Samuels was charged Wednesday with one count of first-degree burglary, 33 counts of second-degree burglary and 26 counts of theft.

The burglaries occurred in Kansas City between July and September 2013. At the time, Smith was on parole for a burglary in Grandview.

Court records say the GPS placed Samuels inside 34 homes where burglaries were reported. The homeowners lost such items as electronics and guns.

It was not immediately clear if Samuels has an attorney.
