COLLEGE STATION - College Station police have arrested a man they say was involved in a whole host of vehicle and apartment burglaries in a number of cities, including a string of as many as 39 separate crimes back in October to December of last year.

Police say 33-year-old Edward Anthony Toscano of San Antonio was arrested Wednesday at a hotel in the 4600 block of Texas Avenue. Investigators say he matched a description associated with numerous break-ins. Toscano was being sought on a number of outstanding arrest warrants from multiple law enforcement agencies around the state, including Austin PD, Travis Co. Sheriff's Office, Bexar Co. Sheriff's Office, Hays Co. Sheriff's Office, Comal Co. Sheriff's Office, Blanco Co. Sheriff's Office, and the Boerne Police Department.

Investigators say they noticed similar methods of break-ins happening in College Station beginning on February 3rd, connected Toscano to the crimes, and made the arrest.

Police said Toscano was found with methamphetamine when he was arrested. They say he then led them to a stolen vehicle, two firearms, and other property believed to be stolen. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance as well as theft ($20,000-100,000), theft of a firearm and burglary of a building.
