WORCESTER – 55-year old Pedro D. Gomez was sentenced by Superior Court Judge David Ricciardone to 10 to 12 years in prison on Tuesday. He was arrested in 2015 for a series of break-in across Worcester and surrounding towns.
Gomez was found guilty in May of two counts of unarmed burglary, six counts of attempted unarmed burglary and one count of larceny from a building.
A Millbury homeowner’s report of a car sitting at the end of her driveway sparked the investigation of Gomez.
Officers and detectives from Worcester, Auburn, Millbury, Shrewsbury and Sutton all supported the investigation. Gomez was tracked by a GPS device and tracked on foot by an Auburn K-9 unit before being arrested.
