Floyd County police have charged Marco Tulio Gutierrez-Cordon, of 400 Burnett Ferry Road, in connection with eight burglaries that have occurred in the past few weeks. He will be charged with a ninth burglary on Monday, according to Sgt. Jeff Jones of the Floyd County Police Department.
He is currently being held on eight counts of burglary, seven counts of criminal trespass and one count of theft by taking.
Gutierrez-Cordon is also a suspect in a burglary on Shoreline Drive, Jones said.
The child deserves all of the credit for Gutierrez-Cordon’s capture by giving officers a description of his vehicle, according to Jones.
“The girl told her neighbor, who was a victim, and when (Sgt. Byron) McCarley interviewed her, she provided the details,” Jones said.
The burglaries in Floyd County occurred during the day and involved breaking glass out of windows, according to the reports.
The burglaries in the county Gutierrez is currently charged with are:
Gutierrez-Cordon was pawning the items he was stealing, using a different name, according to Jones.
Brunswick County, Va. has a hold on Gutierrez-Cordon.
He is also being held for Immigration Customs and Enforcement.
“The day we captured him, we were told he was planning to leave the state,” Jones said.
