WORCESTER – A 55-year-old Worcester man has been found guilty of nine counts of burglary and larceny that occurred in 2015 across Central Massachusetts.
On Monday, a Superior Court jury found Pedro D. Gomez guilty of two counts of unarmed burglary, six counts of attempted unarmed burglary and one count of larceny from a building.
According to the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office, Gomez was arrested on Nov. 5, 2015 in Shrewsbury following an investigation by police in Millbury, Shrewsbury, Sutton, Auburn and Worcester and the State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office.
Judge David Ricciardone scheduled sentencing for July 8.
Gomez became a person of interest to police after a Millbury homeowner alerted police when she noticed a car parked at the end of her driveway. The registration matched Gomez’s vehicle.
A search warrant authorized police to attach a GPS unit to Gomez’ vehicle and track its movements in real time. Police also used a K-9 unit to track Gomez as he moved on foot.
Assistant District Attorney Christopher P. Hodgens prosecuted the case.
