A man was arrested after allegedly breaking into five vehicles, including an SUV operated by the District Attorney’s office, and admitting to breaking into another 20 vehicles earlier this month, according to the Bakersfield Police Department.
Lorenzo Carrillo, 18, was arrested around 4:30 a.m. Sunday after allegedly breaking into five vehicles at two different parking garages in the 1300 and 1400 blocks of 18th Street, near the Kern County Child Support Services building.
One of the vehicles broken into was a Kern County District Attorney’s Office forensic unit SUV.
After being taken into custody, Carrillo told officers he was also responsible for 21 break-ins that occurred July 7 in the 1100 block of Truxtun Avenue, BPD said.
Carrillo was booked on five counts of vehicle burglary and additional drug-related charges.
He was not charged for the alleged break-ins on Truxtun Avenue, as investigation into those burglaries is pending, police said.
