A 27-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were arrested in connection with several burglaries that occurred in Duval and Jim Wells County on Monday.
Duval County Sheriff’s Office working in conjunction with the Benavides and San Diego Police Department as well as the Jim Wells County Sheriff’s Office had been investigating the burglaries. The investigation led authorities to Gilbert Gonzalez Jr. and his juvenile accomplice.
Gonzalez is originally from San Diego, but now resides in Alice.
Within the past two weeks, law enforcement officials in the two counties have responded to numerous burglary of vehicles reports. The suspects are believed to be responsible for the burglaries in the surrounding communities.
An active warrant for a second juvenile remains active as investigators from the different agencies work together to apprehend everyone involved in these cases.
Gonzalez is currently in the Duval County jail. He will be transferred to Jim Wells County after posting bond on their local charges.
