Davis police announced Tuesday the arrests of four Sacramento men in connection with several local burglary cases.
Lt. Glenn Glasgow said the events leading to the investigation began July 7, when surveillance video at an apartment building in the 500 block of Sycamore Lane captured two people stealing bicycles from the complex.
“Three days later, one of the maintenance workers for the complex (saw) two individuals loitering in the apartment complex and immediately recognized them as the two captured on video stealing bicycles,” Glasgow said.
The maintenance worker notified Davis police officers, who arrested Sacramento residents Jeremy Humphries, 27, and James Sarti, 28, on suspicion of conspiracy and drug-related charges, Glasgow said. Both men were lodged at the Yolo County Jail.
A day later, on July 11, Davis police conducted a probation search at Humphries’ residence, reportedly finding items linked to stolen-property cases in Davis and Sacramento. According to Glasgow, the items included a bicycle from the Sycamore Lane apartment complex as well as property reported stolen from the Episcopal Church of St. Martin on nearby Hawthorn Lane.
Officers discovered additional stolen property from Davis and Sacramento during a second probation search at Humphries’ home last Thursday, Glasgow said, resulting in new charges for Humphries and Sarti as well as the arrests of two additional suspects.
Andre Beddow, 30, of Sacramento, was lodged at the Yolo County Jail on suspicion of possession of stolen property and conspiracy, the same charges being sought against Humphries and Sarti, Glasgow said. A fourth man, 28-year-old Anthony Perez of Sacramento, was arrested on an outstanding felony warrant.
