A 19-year-old man suspected of stealing hundreds of dollars in valuables in a series of burglaries over the summer targeting San Jacinto homes was being held on $35,000 bail Saturday.

Jaden Jose Callandrent of San Jacinto was arrested Friday and booked into the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning on suspicion of burglary and receiving stolen property.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, from June to September, Callandrent is suspected of perpetrating burglaries in locations throughout San Jacinto, most recently in the 1300 block of Lindsey Court.

Sgt. Benjamin Medina said detectives developed leads pointing to the suspect last month, but the specific details weren’t disclosed.

Investigators obtained and served a search warrant at his residence in the 1400 block of Mouton Drive late Friday afternoon, discovering “numerous items related to the thefts,” Medina said.

He alleged that among the items recovered were “designer purses, designer shoes, wallets, cash, two PlayStations, as well as a stolen handgun and several firearm parts.”

“Personal identification cards belonging to (several) victims were also found in Callandrent’s possession,” the sergeant said.

Background information on the suspect was unavailable.
