Fresno police say a Bulldog gang member who had 10 backpacks possibly stolen from several vehicles will be kept in a part of Fresno County Jail reserved for career criminals.
Sgt. Mark Hudson said Bennie Montes, 23, was taken into custody Thursday in connection with a burglary Sunday in the area of Fourth Street and Ventura Avenue. Hudson said security video shows a man shining a light into a car, then smashing a window and taking a backpack.
Detectives found the other backpacks when they went to Montes’ home, Hudson said.
Hudson said Montes has been arrested seven times in the past year for burglary and probation violations.
