From noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, May 2 and 3, police will display items allegedly taken in a spree that spanned five weeks and involved 45 vehicles in Tracy, Lodi and Manteca.
The Tracy Police Department was investigating an increase in auto burglaries in the Naglee Road area that began March 3.
In an undercover operation April 13, officers saw 18-year-old Christian Ochoa and a 17-year-old male break into a car at the Park and Ride lot near West Valley Mall.
According to the police log, the duo removed a speaker box from the car and drove off. They were subsequently stopped and arrested.
Ochoa, a Stockton resident, was booked into San Joaquin County Jail in French Camp later that day.
He was released after a court hearing later that week and will have his next court appearance on May 11, where he will face charges of second-degree auto burglary and receiving stolen property.
Two search warrants were served in Stockton following the arrests, and officers recovered items the two had allegedly stolen.
The local police department hopes to return that property to the rightful owners with a viewing. Victims are required to bring a copy of their police report documenting an allegedly stolen item to claim their property.
Among the items recovered are 35 car stereos, 10 amplifiers, 15 speaker boxes, several headrest video monitors and a collection of tools.
Items not claimed will eventually be turned over to an auction house.
