SAN RAMON (CBS SF) — A San Ramon man was arrested Wednesday in connection to 19 residential garage burglaries in San Ramon’s Dougherty Valley area over the past several months, police said Thursday.
Chase Adamic, 23, was arrested Wednesday evening after an ongoing investigation linked him to the burglaries, five of which occurred in the past two weeks, police said.
Investigators found that in each burglary, the suspect used a tool to defeat the garages’ locking systems that left no sign of forced entry. Items stolen included a motorcycle, jewelry, firearms, electronics and tools, according to police.
Earlier Wednesday, after Adamic was determined as a suspect in the garage burglaries, police conducted a search at his home in the 1100 block of Amberstone Lane.
There, officers discovered a large amount of stolen property linked to the garage burglaries, as well as a tool used to crack the garages’ locking systems, according to police.
Officers also found the San Ramon man in possession of narcotics, under the influence of a controlled substance and is suspected of a probation violation, police said.
