San Ramon Police arrested a 23-year-old resident in connection with more than a dozen residential burglaries. Chase Adamic was taken into custody Wednesday night after a search of his home.
Over the past several months there have been 19 reported burglaries to residential garages in the Dougherty Valley area of San Ramon, five of which occurred during the past two weeks. All of the burglarized garages were entered using a tool that defeated the locking mechanisms and left no signs of forced entry.
Stolen items included from tools, electronics, a motorcycle, firearms, jewelry and several other miscellaneous items. Some items were subsequently sold on the internet.
Police conducted a search of Adamic's home on the 1100 block of Amberstone Lane and located a substantial amount of stolen property from several of the reported burglaries, as well as at least one that had not been reported. Officers also found the tool used to defeat the locking mechanisms.
Adamic was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility for charges of residential burglary, receiving stolen property, violation of probation, possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia, and being under the influence of a controlled substance. Lt. Mike Boeher said Adamic was likely under the influence of a narcotic or depressant, either an opioid or pharmaceutical such as OxyCotin.
