Mesquite Police Officers arrested a local man Friday, April 26th for a series of thefts that were occurring in various neighborhoods throughout the City.  MPD received several complaints that Fed Ex packages were being taken from the door steps of several residences shortly after delivery was made.


During the course of their investigation, Mesquite Patrol Officers interviewed several victims and witnesses and gathered enough evidence to make an arrest.


Gerardo Galvez, 30, of Mesquite was arrested without incident and taken to the Mesquite Detention Center where he was charged with Grand Larceny and theft.  Galvez was later transported to the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas.


Many of the stolen items were recovered and returned to the rightful owners.
