The Eagle County Sheriff's Office over the weekend arrested an Eagle-Vail man suspected in several break-ins of occupied homes in the Bachelor Gulch neighborhood.

Here's the entire ECSO press release issued on Saturday:

On the evening of Saturday June 25, 2011 four occupied homes in the Bachelor Gulch area of Eagle County, Colorado were burglarized by a suspect who took several items from the homes to include laptop computers, cell phones, and credit cards. The Eagle County Sheriff's Office was called to investigate the crimes the next morning when the home owners realized items were stolen overnight.

On Friday July 1, 2011, a concerned citizen came to the ECSO Edwards Substation. The man had recently purchased a laptop computer for $1300 on Craigslist (an internet site for selling items). In looking at the memory of the computer, the man became concerned that the computer was stolen and contacted law enforcement.

The ECSO used information from the citizen and other sources to obtain a search warrant for a residence in the Eagle Vail area of Eagle County on the evening of July 1st. The suspect at the residence eventually admitted to the burglaries and turned over to detectives all of the items he stole.

John David Bruer (age 25 from Eagle Vail, Colorado) was arrested and booked into the Eagle County Detention Facility on multiple felony charges including burglary, theft, and trespassing. He is being held on a $15,000 bond. The ECSO will ask that restitution be paid by the suspect to the concerned citizen for his loss from the purchase of the stolen computer.

If you think you may have any information about the suspect or this crime, please call the Eagle County Sheriff's Office at (970) 328-8500 or Eagle County Crime Stoppers at 970-328-7007, 1-800-972-TIPS, submit your tip online at www.tipsubmit.com, or text a tip from your cell phone by texting STOPCRIME plus your message to CRIMES (274637). If your tip leads to the arrest and indictment of any suspect involved, you could earn up to a $1,000 reward from the Crime Stoppers.
