Sandoval Man arrested for alleged burglary

CENTRALIA — Centralia police arrested a 20-year-old Sandoval man over the weekend for alleged burglary after police were alerted to his whereabouts.

Alvaro Martinez was arrested in connection with the reported theft of items last month from the maintenance closet at the Home Motel on West Noleman Street.

According to police, they received a call Saturday from the owner of the motel saying the man suspected in the theft had returned to the motel.

The suspect, now identified as Martinez, was reportedly found walking nearby. Assorted tools reportedly taken from the maintenance closet have reportedly been tied to Martinez. He was subsequently transported to the Marion County Jail.
