FREMONT // Police have announced the arrest of 25-year-old Uriah Harris of San Francisco as the primary suspect in a series of auto burglaries earlier this year.
On January 19th, Fremont patrol officers began investigating multiple auto burglaries at the Pacific Commons Shopping Plaza and surrounding stores, obtaining video surveillance footage and ultimately identifying a suspect vehicle via License Plate Reader cameras.
Investigators also uncovered footage of the suspect himself using credit cards stolen during the burglaries and were able to positively identify Harris. Detectives promptly secured an arrest warrant and began looking for him.
On February 1, detectives spotted Harris driving the suspect vehicle in Berkeley Hills, at which point they contacted Easy Bay Regional Parks Police for assistance. EBRP units and a chopper were dispatched to the scene, where Harris was detained.
Fremont detectives then arrived and took him into custody.
Harris is now housed at the Santa Rita Jail on multiple charges of burglary, identity theft, and unauthorized use of credit cards.
He is also charged by US Park Rangers with committing a felony while out on bail, having allegedly been the culprit behind yet another vehicle burglary at Golden Gate National Park.
