The Hollister man suspected in a string of burglaries last year is scheduled to appear in court Thursday for a standard pre-trial conference.
Carlos C. Sanchez, age 36 when arrested Nov. 1 in the case involving multiple theft-related matters, is set to appear for the hearing at 9 a.m. Thursday in courtroom 3 of the San Benito County Courthouse before Judge Steven Sanders, according to court records. He is represented by attorney Greg LaForge.
Hollister police made the arrest after a string of burglary incidents in Hollister neighborhoods over several months.
The Hollister Police Department in announcing the arrest noted how in the prior months, officers responded to numerous vehicle burglary reports and thefts from various neighborhoods.
According to the HPD:
Two specific cases were recently initiated in which Sanchez was positively identified as the suspect. One case involved stolen electronics from a vehicle burglary that was recycled for money at an in-store kiosk. Another case involved Sanchez using a stolen credit card fraudulently at a local retailer. Sanchez was positively identified as a suspect in those cases.
On Nov. 1, Officer Neyerda Burbank and Officer Bo Leland were attempting to follow up and contact Sanchez at his residence on Nolte Alley in Hollister. Upon contacting the residents, Sanchez initially fled out the back door. Officers quickly set up a perimeter to contain Sanchez in the area. He subsequently returned to his home to hide but was located by Burbank and Leland when they returned to the residence and searched the interior.
Sanchez was transported to and booked at the San Benito County Jail. The district attorney’s office charged him on suspicion of four counts of receiving or concealing stolen property, along with various other drug and disorderly conduct allegations.
Sanchez remained in custody at the San Benito County Jail as of Tuesday with his bail set at $30,000, according to jail personnel.
