NORTH HOLLYWOOD (CNS) - A man was in custody today for allegedly committing dozens of commercial burglaries across the San Fernando Valley and Burbank areas, police announced today.

Reuben Newhouse, 62, was arrested on March 1, the Los Angeles Police Department reported. Newhouse was being held on $505,000 bail, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

``From October 29, 2020, through February 25, 2022, Newhouse was responsible for over 70 commercial burglaries in the Valley, with 26 in North Hollywood,'' an LAPD statement said.

Most of the crimes were committed between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m., and the suspect's image was recorded on a number of security videos, police said.

``Crime alerts and community alerts were disseminated across the Valley with no leads until a concern(ed) citizen, discovered evidence on the side of the road,'' police said. ``The evidence led North Hollywood burglary detectives to Newhouse's residence.''
