AUBURN — A Worcester man was arrested in a series of burglaries last month.
Police investigated a series of car crashes late at night from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. on June 26 in the Pakachoag and Central streets area. The suspect was seen on home surveillance cameras riding a BMX bike from house to house and checking car door handles and opening those that weren’t locked, police said.
Five hours earlier, a resident of Pakachoag Street reported a suspicious vehicle near his home and provided police with the license plate, which came back stolen.
Police saw José Olivo-Adorno, 23, of 26 Dayton St., Apt. 6, Worcester, park the stolen car on a side street near his home. Police say various items stolen from nighttime burglaries in Worcester and Shrewsbury were found in the car and returned to their rightful owners.
Items recovered included 9mm and 45 cal. ammunition, a loaded gun magazine, a cell phone, two purses, credit cards, car keys/house keys and a wedding ring worth $13,500, police said.
Adorno is charged with receiving a stolen motor vehicle; receiving stolen property over $1,200, subsequent offence; seven counts of receiving stolen property under $1,200, subsequent offenses and possession of ammunition without an FID card.
