Police arrested Thursday a man suspected of being behind a string of burglaries in Kagman.
Thomas Daniel Riner, 29, was brought to the Superior Court Friday for bail hearing on charges of theft.
Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho imposed a $1,000 cash bail for Riner's temporary release.
Police detective Peter L. Cruz stated in his report that, on April 11, 2012, a police officer was dispatched to Kagman III to investigate a burglary and theft incident. The items stolen were a power electric drill, a Sony television, extension cord, and a refrigerator.
Cruz said that, on Sunday, Sept. 23, two detectives conducted follow-up investigations on other burglary cases in Kagman III. A concerned citizen told one of detectives that Riner is responsible for these burglaries.
The citizen said that Riner burglarized a house and stole a refrigerator three months ago. Riner reportedly attempted to sell the refrigerator to a neighbor, but the latter refused to buy it. Instead, Riner allegedly sold the refrigerator to his grandfather.
Cruz said the grandfather admitted that Riner sold the refrigerator to him, but that a woman stopped by their residence and claimed that it was stolen from her house.
Cruz said that, on Monday, a detective showed a picture of the refrigerator to a couple, who identified it as the one stolen from their house.
