A Jacksonville man was arrested Friday for an October burglary to a home and stealing close to $150,000 from the house, police said.

Devin Jarell Mitchell, 21, broke into a home on River Place Lane in Orange Park, Florida back in October of last year while the owner was out of town and took several things, according to a Clay County arrest warrant. Mitchell took clothing, jewelry, cash, rare coins, firearms, firearm accessories and other things.

Authorities also found a smashed box with gold inlaid crystals, valued at $37,500.

Deputies tracked Mitchell by finding items he pawned at area stores. A Hungarian ducat coin (valued at $280) was pawned - so was a 1990 $50 coin (valued at $720) and a gold necklace (valued at $1,000), among other items. 

On Friday, a Clay County Sheriff's deputy visited Mitchell at his Jacksonville home with the arrest warrant in hand. 

Mitchell was taken to Clay County Jail on $365,000 bond.
