WORCESTER — A Superior Court jury on Monday found a 55-year-old Worcester man guilty of several charges related to a series of 2015 break-ins in area communities, according to the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office.
Pedro D. Gomez was found guilty of two counts of unarmed burglary, six counts of attempted unarmed burglary and one count of larceny from a building. Judge David Ricciardone scheduled sentencing for July 8.
Mr. Gomez was arrested on Nov. 5, 2015 in Shrewsbury following an investigation by police in Millbury, Shrewsbury, Sutton, Auburn and Worcester and the State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office.
He became a person of interest to police after an alert homeowner in Millbury had noticed a car parked at the end of her driveway and reported it to authorities. The registration matched Mr. Gomez’s vehicle.
A search warrant authorized police to attach a GPS unit to his vehicle and track its movements in real time. Police also used a K-9 unit to track Mr. Gomez as he moved on foot.
Assistant District Attorney Christopher P. Hodgens prosecuted the case.
