A Citrus Heights man was arrested in the Bay Area in connection with four burglaries in the Del Webb community in Lincoln.

Dennis Godwin of Citrus Heights was arrested Tuesday in Foster City for allegedly burglarizing about $35,000 in personal property from four residences in March, according to the Lincoln Police Department.

One of the victims arrived home to find the suspect loading her personal property into his vehicle, police said. When the female victim contacted the suspect, he immediately fled in his truck.

Police were able to recover pieces of jewelry that were returned to one of the victims.

Godwin’s bail is set at $200,000 and officials may extradite him to Placer County from the San Mateo County jail.
