1 min read

AUBURN — A 23-year-old Worcester man has been sentenced to 20 months in jail following a series of vehicle thefts and break-ins, authorities said Monday.

Jose Adorno was charged in June with two counts of receiving a stolen motor vehicle and numerous other offenses.

Adorno was also linked to over a dozen motor vehicle break-ins in the Auburn area, specifically around Central Street and Goddard Drive.

Auburn Police Department’s Bureau of Criminal Identifications identified Adorno through evidence found in the stolen vehicles.

While the nature of the evidence was not disclosed to prevent compromising investigation tactics, it was instrumental in connecting Adorno to the crimes.

Auburn detectives expanded their investigation, linking Adorno to additional crimes in neighboring communities and recovering three stolen vehicles.

Adorno was sentenced on Feb. 12 at the Worcester County House of Correction.

The investigation benefited from community assistance, including video footage of the masked perpetrator and reports of suspicious activity.

Auburn Police encourage residents to report any suspicious behavior, reminding them to keep their vehicles locked and secure their keys.

The department emphasizes the importance of community involvement in crime prevention.

Anyone with information on criminal activity is urged to contact the Auburn Police Department Detectives at 508-833-7777.
