After a former WWE champion chased down a suspected burglar, police were able to connect three other people to crimes around Arcadia and Phoenix.
 
According to police, the grappler, whose real name is Bryan Danielson, saw a door to his Phoenix house start to open. Authorities say two men then ran out and Danielson gave chase.

Police say the wrestler caught one of the suspected burglars, 22-year-old Cesar Sosa, while a second suspect got away.
 
Investigators say Sosa and Danielson got into a struggle but the former champ subdued him until police arrived.
 
Sosa was arrested and faces a burglary charge. It was not known if Sosa had an attorney.

Based on information from Sosa, investigators were able to identify three other people involved in burglaries throughout Arcadia and Phoenix.

Phoenix police say they found the 2003 Mercedes Benz used in Danielson's burglary on Wednesday.

Soon afterward, they saw the Mercedes' driver, 30-year-old Alexandra Olvera, 20-year-old Edward Alexander Johnson and 21-year-old Gilberto Gil Gastelum allegedly committing a burglary at a home near Bell and Tatum.

As officers were preparing to arrest the suspects, police say they committed a second burglary at a different home.

The suspects were arrested and a handgun and a Taser were found in their car.

In addition to the alleged burglaries on Wednesday, police say they have information that links the suspects to at least two other burglaries in the last few days. 

According to investigators, Olvera was driving the getaway car at the burglary at Danielson's home.

Olvera, Johnson and Gastelum were booked into jail and charged with burglary and Participating in a Criminal Syndicate. 

Olvera was also charged for her participation in the July 24th burglary.

Johnson, a prohibited possessor, was charged with Misconduct Involving Weapons because of the handgun inside the vehicle.

Danielson, known for his "Yes!" chants, currently is recovering from a previous injury.
