A Palm Beach County man has been arrested in connection with three burglaries and thefts that occurred in May and June in County Club Estates and the Vineyards in Port St. Lucie.
Alexander Saridakis, 32, was arrested Monday on warrants charging him with grand theft auto, three counts of burglary and two counts of grand theft, police said in a statement. He was being held Tuesday at the St. Lucie County Jail on $60,000 in bond.
Police said they are still trying to identify a second man allegedly involved in the crimes: “Mike T” is believed to be Hispanic, about age 30, 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 200 pounds.
According to police, the three thefts were:
• A refrigerator, wine cooler, washer and freezer taken May 31 from a van home in the 800 block of Southwest Gran Reserve Boulevard in the Vineyards.
• A range and refrigerator taken June 14 from a vacant home in the 1300 block of Southwest Cedar Cove in Country Club Estates.
• A 2000 White Ford Expedition taken June 14 from the garage of a vacant home in the 1200 block of Southwest Cedar Cove in Country Club Estates.
Saridakis was identified through photographs taken by a witness to the vehicle theft, who also got the tag number on the pickup the men used to tow the Expedition from the property, police said.
Anyone with information about the second suspect is asked to call police at 772-871-5001 or Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 800-273-TIPS (8477).
