Burglar nabbed in string of Pleasanton thefts

Suspect linked to at least 10 burglaries

by Glenn Wohltmann

A Castro Valley man has been arrested in connection with a string of local burglaries.

Peter Grgurevic III, 19, has been linked to 10 burglaries in northwest Pleasanton and Castro Valley and will likely be connected to more, according to a report from the Pleasanton Police Department.

Police credit two leads in breaking the case: a laptop stolen in one of the burglaries that had loss prevention tracking software, and a police artist sketch produced after an interrupted burglary in late October.

A search warrant at Grgurevic's home turned up hundreds of items, including jewelry, electronics, high-end purses and jewelry boxes, said police. The report said Grgurevic has admitted to being responsible for numerous burglaries in Pleasanton and Castro Valley; police will be contacting victims to see if they can identify items seized from Grgurevic's home.

Grgurevic is being held at Santa Rita Jail on seven counts of residential burglary. The arrest was the result of a cooperative investigation with Pleasanton police and the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.
