Police Arrest Five in String of Reno Home Burglaries

By  | 

Reno police have arrested five suspects in a string of home burglaries around the Reno area. Investigators think they are part of a local gang.

Police tell, us around 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, they pulled over a car that matched witness descriptions and video surveillance from several burglaries. Officers found a gun, several electronic items, collector's coins, and jewelry inside the car. Some of the items found were linked to burglaries on Stewart Street and Circle Drive. Police think more property recovered could be linked to several burglaries from southwest Reno.

Police arrested 20 year old Jose Guerrero, who was also charged with four counts of Burglary with the Assistance of a Minor.
Another man, 18 year old Edgar Virgen was arrested and charged with Possession of Stolen Property.
Three minors were arrested, but police aren't telling us their names because they are underage.

Police are hoping to find out more about this case. If you know anything that can help with the investigation, please call Reno Police or Secret Witness at 322-4900.
