This is not the first time Quinteros has alluded authorities. He was arrested in April after a month of allegedly committing a string of burglaries. He was later released on bail.
Sheriffs believe Quinteros broke into a home in Pixley on Wednesday and took cash, jewelery and video game equipment. A woman was at home at the time of the break-in, but was able to hide in a closet and was not harmed.
