A 29-year-old Livermore man was taken into custody this week for two alleged thefts the week prior of thousands of dollars in property.
Upon receiving a report from a school resource officer of an electric bicycle that was stolen from a high school student who'd secured it in the bike storage unit at his campus on March 16, officers with the Livermore Police Department (LPD) identified a suspect via surveillance footage, according to a statement from the department.
After serving a search warrant at the suspect's home on Monday (March 20), officers discovered property that had been reported stolen in a burglary at the Granada Little League fields at Max Baer Park the day prior on March 15, as well as other stolen property.
The stolen sports equipment was valued at $3,500 and the e-bike was valued at $2,400, according to police.
The suspect was taken into custody on Wednesday (March 22) at a different residence, after which police discovered stolen property from a number of other thefts, including two scooters, a credit card and three Ring cameras, with some of the property coming from a recent vehicle burglary. Livermore Police is currently in the process of contacting all the victims.
The suspect is being held without bail on charges including grand theft, burglary, possession of stolen property, and felony ammunition possession.
According to an announcement from LPD, the suspect "has an extensive criminal history and is known to Livermore Police," and was previously out on bail for two counts of felony stolen vehicle possession.
Police are asking anyone with more information to contact their anonymous tip line at (925) 371-4790.
