A 28-year-old felon accused of burglarizing businesses in Mecca including Mecca College of the Desert remained in custody Tuesday.
Carlos Cholico Alvarado was arrested Monday on suspicion of burglary, possession of stolen property and possession of a stolen vehicle and booked at the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta, according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Sgt. Sal Gonzalez.
Jail records did not immediately reflect his bail amount, or provide a date for his initial court appearance.
Alvarado is accused of burglarizing Oasis Community Waste Management and Mecca College of the Desert, although the sheriff’s department did not specify when the alleged burglaries occurred.
The investigation led deputies to the 99000 block of Corvina Drive near North Shore, where stolen property from multiple burglaries was located, along with stolen vehicles and stolen license plates, the department said. Alvarado was arrested at the property.
Alvarado was convicted of burglary in 2015, and has other documented felony convictions in Riverside County including taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent, willful child cruelty and evading arrest.
