A Walnut Creek man suspected in multiple burglaries from recent months is in jail after allegedly burglarizing a home in Orinda on Friday, Contra Costa County sheriff’s officials said. Kyle Facchin, 30, was arrested Friday afternoon on suspicion of residential burglary, resisting arrest, impersonating another person and narcotics possession, according to the sheriff’s office. Orinda police responded around 1:45 p.m. Friday to reports of a break-in at a home on Muth Drive.
The suspect, later identified as Facchin, fled the scene before officers arrived but was spotted by an officer near state Highway 24 and St. Stephens Drive, sheriff’s officials said. The suspect ran, prompting a short chase, and was arrested a short time later with the aid of Lafayette police and the California Highway Patrol. He was taken to county jail in Martinez, where he is being held without bail. Sheriff’s officials said Facchin is suspected in other burglaries in Contra Costa County, including a July break-in at a home on Neely Court in Alamo in which he allegedly stole more than $12,000 in jewelry, electronics and utensils.
