A suspect was arrested Tuesday in connection with a San Carlos car burglary after which stolen credit cards were used to make fraudulent purchases, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Gabriel Cole Clancyclavere, 22, of San Mateo, was arrested about 3:30 p.m. at his girlfriend’s home in the 100 block of Northumberland Avenue in unincorporated Redwood City and booked on charges of grand theft, identity theft and vehicle tampering, the sheriff’s office said.

The vehicle burglary occurred Jan. 19, and investigators were able to identify Clancyclavere after video surveillance allegedly captured him using the stolen credit cards to make purchases.

After a $20,000 warrant was obtained for his arrest, he was taken into custody at his girlfriend’s house without incident and booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility.
