Javier Garcia, Dominic Eales
SACRAMENTO, CA - Two men police investigators suspect of committing hundreds of car burglaries in the Sacramento area over the last year have been arrested, says a police spokeswoman.
The pair, identified as Javier Garcia, 25, and Dominic Eales, 19, were found when Arden Fair Mall security officers scanned surveillance camera tapes following reports of multiple car break-ins in their lots on Jan. 30. Mall security saw two men and a suspect vehicle in the camera images and informed Sacramento police.
Police were able to find the vehicle in question as well as locate property reported stolen in burglaries, Gigante said.
Garcia and Eales are accused of burglary and conspiracy, Gigante said. They are being investigated in connection with other similar crimes.
