PHOENIX -

Thanks to some tips from the public, police have arrested a suspected burglar and his getaway driver.

A homeowner heard rustling in his garage on March 26 and when he went outside, he saw a suspect running towards a waiting vehicle with his Ping golf clubs in the open trunk.

But he didn't make a very clean getaway. He tripped over the golf bag and tumbled onto his face before he could throw the clubs into his accomplice's truck. He was able to get the clubs in the truck and they got away.

The 63-year-old man tried to catch them in his own car, but eventually lost them.

After Phoenix Police released surveillance video to the media, officers say 35-year-old Andrew Hargenrader and Matt Tippett were identified as the two suspects.

They say Tippett was driving the getaway car while Hargenrader got the golf clubs.

Hargenrader was arrested Monday at his job in Peoria and was booked on charges of burglary and trafficking in stolen property.

Tippett, the suspected driver of the getaway vehicle, was found on Thursday and arrested. Police say he was driving a vehicle that belonged to Hargenrader.

Police say both men admitted to being involved in the burglary.

According to police, Hargenrader admitted to selling the stolen golf clubs to someone he knows. Investigators have some information about the buyer, but haven't been able to find him.

Officers believe the man didn't know he had purchased stolen property.

If you have any information, call 602-262-6151 or 480-WITNESS.

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom. "This is the latest and then most effective sanitization method available today," says Bill Swan, the owner of the Goddard School. He purchased the ZONO Sanitech for his school about six months ago. The machine is the size of a double refrigerator and uses oxygen to kill viruses and bacteria.
