Red Bank Police have linked a man they arrested last week with five early-morning burglaries on the East Side.

Mauro Vasquez-Galvan, 26, of East Front Street, is being held in the Monmouth County Jail on $135,000 bail following his arrest Friday, June 15 at 4:50a for defiant trespass.

He was discovered in the rear yard of a residence on Linden Place, according to a statement issued by Lt. Stephen McCarthy. The arrest was part of an increased patrol and surveillance operation of the area initiated in response to a number of residential nighttime burglaries in the area, McCarthy said. Ptl. Robert Kennedy and Ptl. Steven Adams made the arrest.

Subsequent investigation by Sgt. Eliot Ramos led to Vasquez-Galvan being charged with the following incidents:

• May 23 burglary and theft of jewelry, camera equipment and personal items from a residence on Washington St.

• May 24 burglary and theft of personal items of a Mechanic St residence, in which the homeowner was awakened as the suspect was rummaging through her jewelry box in her bedroom. The suspect fled upon being discovered.

• May 30 attempted burglary of a Spring St. residence, in which the resident surprised a subject as he was attempting to enter her home through a first-floor window. The suspect fled the area upon being discovered.

• June 10 attempted burglary of a Mechanic St. residence, in which the homeowner was awakened by a noise outside her home and discovered the suspect attempting to climb through a window to the house. The suspect fled upon being discovered.

• June 13 burglary of a Linden Place residence, in which the resident woke up to discover the suspect inside her home. The suspect then fled.

All of the above incidents occurred between the hours of 3a and 5:30a, McCarthy said, and in each case entry entry was through either unlocked doors or partially opened first-floor windows.

Bail was set by Municipal Court Judge William Himelman.
