Bexar County Sheriff Susan Pamerleau’s office has announced the capture of a suspect in a rash of home burglaries across the North Side.
Gilbert Torres is suspected in burglaries on the Northeast and Northwest sides of the city and county since last fall. Bexar County sheriff’s investigators arrested Torres Friday with several thousand dollars worth of stolen merchandise in his possession, including jewelry, guns, tools and electronics, coin collections and prescription medications.
Investigators say they are continuing to look at a number of burglaries they believe Torres is responsible for. Torres so far has been charged with six counts of burglary of a habitation and felony firearms possession.
Officials say much of the merchandise has been returned to homeowners and they are continuing to search for the rightful owners of other merchandise.
