San Jose: Arrests made, property recovered in storage burglaries

SAN JOSE — Four South Bay residents have been arrested in connection with a string of storage unit burglaries earlier this year that netted nearly $400,000 worth of property, a fraction of which was recovered in a series of police raids, authorities said.

The people arrested — two San Jose men and a San Jose woman all in their mid-40s, and a 19-year-old Milpitas man — were booked on suspicion of crimes encompassing burglary, grand theft, conspiracy, vandalism, and possessing stolen property.

Their homes were searched March 27 by a cadre of San Jose Police Department officers following an investigation by burglary detectives, police said.

The search reportedly uncovered $60,000 worth of stolen property, including an array of guitars and music equipment and scores of comic books and trading cards. Officers also seized a handgun, high-capacity magazine, ammunition and illegal drugs, though police noted that those items were not related to the storage thefts.
