A Stock Island man was arrested for burglarizing another man’s apartment Thursday morning.
The victim told Deputy Freddy Rodriguez he came home from work around 11 a.m. and found a white truck in front of his residence loaded with his belongings. He also found two men carrying his belongings to the truck from inside the residence. When he confronted the man, they fled in the truck. Further investigation revealed the suspects had damaged the door to the residence to gain entry.
Several witnesses identified one of the men as 42 year old Jorge Garmas. Garmas was located later in the day and was arrested. He was charged with burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief. A prescription pill bottle was found in his possession with three types of medication inside. Garmas did not have a prescription for the medications. He was further charged with illegal possession of a controlled substance.
The investigation is continuing with another arrest expected.
