Man Connected to 23 San Carlos Burglaries Arrested

A jewel thief running rampant throughout the city has been nabbed by police.

A transient man believed to be connected to several home burglaries in San Mateo County over the last two months was arrested Friday following an investigation by the sheriff's department, sheriff's officials said.

A total of 23 homes in the city of San Carlos have been burglarized during daytime hours over the last two months, sheriff's officials said, and the thief or thieves have mainly taken jewelry.

Detectives analyzed evidence left at the scene to attempt to identify suspects, including fingerprints and shoe prints left at the scene.

On Monday, deputies contacted Aaron Tadday in the 600 block of Park Avenue in San Carlos and found him in possession of men's and women's jewelry. Tadday could not explain why he had the jewelry and deputies confiscated it.

On Wednesday deputies determined that the confiscated jewelry matched the description of jewelry taken in the 1200 block of Howard Avenue last Sunday. 

Deputies then tried to find Tadday again, and discovered he was
staying at the Deluxe Inn at 1502 Stafford St. in Redwood City.

Deputies arrived at the motel at around 4:30 p.m. but Tadday had
fled the room, sheriff's officials said. More jewelry was found in his room.

A warrant was issued for Tadday's arrest, and on Friday at 11:45
a.m. deputies found him at the America's Best Inn at 1090 El Camino Real in
Redwood City.

Tadday was booked into San Mateo County Jail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday. Investigators believe that Tadday is responsible for many but not all of the 23 recent burglaries in San Carlos.

Odd --On Monday they found Jewelry on him that was not his...and they only took it away.....and didn;t arrest him for being in posession of stolen property?????? Wouldn't ya make the connection between someone having jewelry they couldn't explain and jewelry being stolen from 23 homes in your area???? ---I guess I have been watching too much CSI

Can you please let him go again? Only this time, let us know where you will release him and then we can have our own punishment session. This filth will get a slap on the wrist and most likely early release, if any jail time at all. Total BS!

What? They let HIM go? That officer should be fired! What incompetence.

Perhaps we could put him up at the Soffitel instead with our tax dollars that are undoubtedly being exploted by these flea bag hotels. Looks like he will now get 3 weeks at county lockup. Our police must like fishing, catch and release.
