STAMFORD - Stamford police have arrested a man they say may be behind as many as 200 burglaries across the tri-state area.

Police say they charged Miguel Morales, 28, of Queens, N.Y., in connection with robberies on Fieldstone Terrace and Merriman Road.

Investigators say Morales was part of a larger ring that targeted homes of families of Asian descent.

Police say they tied Morales to the Stamford burglaries after investigators discovered several phone calls from a prepaid cell phone moments before the break-in.

Authorities say that led them to a larger ring in Queens where they say they also found a notebook with hundreds of houses the group is suspected of hitting.
