KING CITY — A 26-year-old King City man has been arrested for burglary after breaking into a vehicle in the Safeway parking lot.

According to King City Police, at about 6:09 a.m. on Oct. 26, officers responded to a report of a vehicle burglary that occurred outside Safeway.

While the officers were responding, a suspicious subject — later identified as Abram Navarro, 26, of King City — was seen in the area. Navarro fled the area once he saw the police vehicles.

“Through a review of city camera footage, and victim statements, it was determined that Abram Navarro was responsible for the burglary,” police said in a news release.

During an area check, police located Navarro in a local fast-food restaurant, where he was contacted and a probation search was conducted. Glass from the broken vehicle window was found in Navarro’s backpack, police said.

Items stolen from the vehicle were also located in the bathroom at the business.

Navarro was arrested and booked into Monterey County Jail on charges for vehicle burglary, possession of burglary tools and violation of probation.

“King City Police Department would like to remind the community not to leave valuable belongings inside of unattended vehicles,” police said.
