Eduardo Soliz arrested for string of home invasions and burglaries

In 2015, local law enforcement agencies began to investigate a string of home invasions and burglaries in the El Paso area. Now the U.S. Marshal’s believe they have their man, after arresting Eduardo Soliz, 38, Monday.

Soliz has a long criminal history of theft. Authorities have called his activities a crime spree, one they’re happy to put an end to.

Soliz was arrested for what authorities are calling a string of home invasions and burglaries. They give an example in October 2015, where Soliz allegedly broke into the home of a woman and her infant child. The two hid in the bathroom as police say Soliz kicked in a side door and yell, “U.S. Marshals, get on the ground!” He then tried to break into the bathroom before fleeing the scene.

Soliz has six warrants for burglaries, six for theft. Affidavits say as far back as 2011, Soliz had a penchant for stealing jewelry, electronics, power tools, even copper wire, specifically in the Socorro area.

Authorities say via a sting operation months in the making, they were able to catch him walking down an east El Paso street.

“Our task force was able to apprehend this fugitive safely and put an end to his crime spree. I’m proud to say our task force worked diligently to locate and apprehend this fugitive before he hurt someone.” said Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal.

Soliz is in jail tonight on a $282,000 bond.
