A 35-year-old Roxbury man was arrested Thursday in connection with several instances of shoplifting, home burglaries, and larceny that were followed by sales of the stolen goods totaling more than $500,000 out of a Dorchester storefront, police said.

Detectives arrested Juan Marte-Nunez on a warrant around 12:30 p.m. while executing a search warrant on the storefront at 485 Geneva Ave., Boston police said in a statement.

Police obtained the warrants after a long investigation related to the thefts and the resale of the stolen property, according to the statement.

Marte-Nunez faces five conspiracy charges, seven counts of receiving stolen property, and three aggravated shoplifting charges, police said. Those charges may be expanded as the investigation continues.
