HEBRON, KY (FOX19) -

A married couple accused of breaking into five Hebron homes were arrested Tuesday, after being pulled over by detectives.

Michael Ritchey 37, and Meaghan Roll, 32, of Fort Thomas, were charged with five counts of burglary after police noticed the stolen property in their vehicle after pulling them over. 

Officials say two detectives pulled the couple over in the 7000 block of River Road after their vehicle matched a description from one of the previous burglaries.  

Detectives saw the vehicle pull into a driveway and the driver walked up to a home while the passenger stayed in the car.  The detectives walked up to Schepis' car. One of them recognized the stolen property and saw the couple's one-and-a-half-year-old child sitting in a car seat, wearing some of the stolen jewelry. 

Ritchey and Roll confessed to their spree and blamed it on their heroin addictions, according to Boone County Sheriff's spokesman Tom Scheben.  

Ritchey initially denied the allegations until he was shown surveillance video showing him inside one of the homes.

Ritchey and Roll are both being held in the Boone County Detention Center on the charges and several arrest warrants from other jurisdictions.

The toddler was placed in the care of grandparents.
