Armani Blanco faces charges of burglary, vandalism and shoplifting following his arrest. He is accused of breaking into the Extreme Auto Body shop at 1300 Old County Road around 10:20 p.m. April 11 and stealing two computers and two sensor tools worth a total of about $9,600, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
The shop owner discovered the break-in the next day and called police, and store surveillance footage showed Blanco breaking in and stealing the items, prosecutors said.
On April 12, Blanco allegedly stole $423 worth of groceries from a Safeway store in Belmont but was caught by police within minutes.
He remains in custody and is set to return to court on April 27 for a preliminary hearing.
