COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

A man was arrested in connection to burglaries in the College Station area. 

College Station police officers responded to a home on the 3500 block of Pikes Peak at 5 a.m. on March 15. Officers discovered that the two homes located next to each other on this block were burglarized. The suspect had stolen an estimated $5,000 worth of digital equipment and electronics. The residents were away on spring break. 

On March 20, a victim called police to advise that they had found what appeared to be their stolen printer on a "for sale" app. The victim had set up a meeting with the suspect, Cristian Antonio Santos,22, under the impression they were interested in purchasing the printer. 

Santos met with the victim at the police department "Safe Zone" and sold the printer to the victim. Officers observed the transaction and stepped in to make contact with Santos. 

Santos was not charged at the time of the interview and was released. Police found out that Santos lived next door to the victims. Santos eventually confessed to breaking into the homes and dumping some of the items into a dumpster after initially speaking to police. 

Police also found marijuana in Santos' residence. 

Santos was charged with two counts of burglary of a habitation and one count of possession of marijuana. 

The property was returned to the owners.
