Police arrested a San Jose man last week after he allegedly burglarized several Mountain View businesses over the course of two months last year.
The Mountain View Police Department released a statement Monday that it was investigating a string of commercial burglaries during the holiday season, between November and December. Officers tracked these thefts to a suspect, a 43-year-old San Jose man.
Officers served a search warrant on the man's home on Jan. 12 and recovered "stolen items," the nature of which police are not disclosing to the public. Police say these items tie the suspect to the burglaries, and he was arrested without incident.
At least five businesses were targeted, but more may have been burglarized, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson. The man appears to have targeted small businesses, she said, and he stole cash from the cash registers.
The man was arrested and booked into Santa Clara County jail on suspicion of burglary and possession of narcotics, police said.
The investigation is ongoing and more details will be released later, according to the statement. Police do not know how much money was taken, and are not releasing information on how he was identified.
