HOUSTON - A man was taken into custody Thursday after he was accused of several break-ins, Harris County constables with Precinct 1 said. 

Alan Alvarado, 35, was arrested on a charge of burglary of a habitation stemming from an incident in the Heights on June 28 in the 200 block of Malone. Investigators believe he gained access to the home through a dog door.

The homeowners reported roughly $108,782 worth of jewelry and guns were stolen, investigators said. 

Officials believe Alvarado may be involved in a string of other burglaries in the Heights over recent months. 

Court records show an extensive criminal history for Alvarado.
