Police have announced the arrest of a suspect in a series of car burglaries throughout the city of Auburn last week.
On the afternoon of Saturday, January 4, officers were responding to a series of reported car burglaries throughout the city, which continued even as they investigated.
Authorities were able to obtain a description of a possible suspect and suspect vehicle, which they then circulated throughout the county.
It wasn’t long before a deputy stopped a vehicle matching said description. The driver, identified as 34-year-old Charles Mosley of Pittsburg, was identified as the primary suspect in the burglaries, of which eight in total were reported, after stolen items were found in the vehicle.
Mosley was arrested and booked at the Placer County Jail on six counts of burglary and two counts of possession of stolen property, with bail set at $1.3 million.
