Jargle Soto-Suazo, 33, faces charges for break-ins in Medford, Brookline, Quincy, Watertown and Arlington, the Middlesex County District Attorney's office reports, along with police in the five communities.
Soto-Suazo was apprehended following an alleged break-in that occurred in Brookline on Thursday, February 7. As part of the ongoing joint investigation into the alleged burglaries, police from multiple departments located the defendant displaying suspicious behavior in the area of Colbourne Street in Brookline. Police subsequently identified signs of an apparent break-in at a home in a neighborhood where Brookline Police had allegedly seen the suspect leaving moments earlier. The defendant was arrested as he was leaving the scene.
A search warrant was subsequently executed on the defendant’s Boston home and vehicle that allegedly resulted in authorities discovering multiple items, including several watches, small jewelry items, a firearm and an iPad, that were reportedly stolen from residences across multiple communities.
The preliminary investigation suggests that the defendant entered the residences through second story windows between the hours of 4:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. using a pry bar. In several instances residents of the homes were present during the break-ins.
Today charges have been filed against Soto-Suazo for a total of 19 burglaries including: four in Medford, six in Brookline, seven in Quincy, one in Watertown and one in Arlington. Charges include multiple counts of breaking and entering in the nighttime to commit a felony, attempted breaking and entering, possession of burglarious tools and receiving stolen property. The investigation into this matter is ongoing and investigators are also looking at recent reported burglaries in Belmont and Winchester.
