    At 11:00 AM on Oct. 15, Monterey Police Detectives arrested Gary Joseph Dean, a 45 year-old male, on multiple charges relating to recent stolen vehicles. Dean was arrested without incident at his home in Soledad.

    The arrest stemmed from an investigation that began when a local business owner reported a suspicious person and vehicle in his parking lot at 1200 Olmsted, Monterey on September 29, 2014. Responding officers located the unoccupied vehicle, a 2002 BMW, and determined that it had been stolen from Seaside on September 10, 2014. Located in the vehicle was property reported stolen during a vehicle burglary in Monterey on September 14, 2014 from 2110 N. Fremont.

    Detectives were able to identify Dean as the suspect based on evidence located in the stolen vehicle. They found that he was on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) for vehicle theft, but were not able to locate him at the time.

    On September 30, 2014, a woman was standing outside of her running vehicle, a 2007 Mazda 5, at 2415 N. Fremont, Monterey, when a suspect got in and stole it. Dean was identified by a witness as the suspect in that case.

    When Monterey Detectives arrived at Dean’s residence this morning, they found the vehicle stolen on September 30, 2014 (Mazda) parked outside the house. The vehicle had drug paraphernalia and property stolen from another vehicle burglary reported on October 4, 2014 in Monterey from 1100 Munras Ave. When taken into custody, Dean had property on him that was reported stolen from both the September 10, 2014 vehicle theft (BMW) and the September 14, 2014 vehicle burglary.

    Dean was arrested for two counts vehicle theft, two counts of possession of stolen vehicles, two counts of possession of stolen property, one count of possession of smoking or injecting paraphernalia, and a PRCS violation. He is being held at the Monterey County Jail, pending arraignment, with no bail.
