Parolee arrested after Del Mar burglaries

Hours after a number of Del Mar homes were burglarized, deputies on Oct. 22 arrested a parolee they found with several of the stolen items, a sheriff lieutenant said Oct. 23. Adam Bautista, 24, was also found with other items that deputies suspect were stolen during the spree, Lt. Kenn Nelson said.

Nelson said a number of residents on Stratford Court, near 4th Street, reported overnight and early-morning burglaries on Oct. 22.

Deputies arrested Bautista after someone spotted him looking through garage lockers in a nearby condominium complex, Nelson said.

Bautista was arrested on suspicion of residential burglary, petty theft with a prior conviction and being a felon in possession of ammunition.

Anyone in the Del Mar area who may have been victim in the burglary series but has not yet spoken to authorities can call sheriff’s Detective Mike Casey at the Encinitas station at (760) 966-3500.
