Morgan Hill – A 35-year-old Morgan Hill man, who may be responsible for “80-90 percent of the recent auto burglaries in Vineyard and Tennant area,” was arrested Friday morning, possibly about to break into another vehicle, Sgt. David Myers said.

Eddie Tomasetti was taken to county jail on charges of parole violation, possession of stolen property, possession of burglary tools, possession of a controlled substance and providing false information to a police officer.

Morgan Hill Police Officer Rodney Krewson was conducting a patrol check through the parking lot of the new Safeway shortly after 9am when he saw a man acting suspiciously, Myers said.

Krewson saw Tomasetti walk quickly away from a Cadillac Escalade as the officer’s patrol car approached, and Tomasetti appeared “startled and nervous.”

The officer got out of his vehicle and began to talk to Tomasetti, who initially gave police a false name.

Tomasetti was detained while a parole search was conducted at his Morgan Hill residence. Officers found “numerous items related to multiple car burglaries and other thefts,” Myers said.

The property was taken to the police department, where it is being identified.

Some of the items may have come from recent auto burglaries in Gilroy, police said.
