Bexar County Sheriff's investigators used this morning's ice storm to put a burglar on ice.


1200 WOAI news reports that detectives moved in and arrested Gilbert Torres on six counts of burglary of a habitation, one county of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and one count of felony theft of a firearm. Torres is held in the Bexar County Jail on $125,000 bond.


Detectives also found Torres in possession of several thousand dollars worth of stolen jewelry, guns, electronics, collectable coins, and prescription medications.


Officials think Torres is responsible for several additional burglaries, mainly in northeast and northwest San Antonio and in Bexar County.


Investigators say Torres has an 'extensive criminal history' and the string of burglaries go back to last fall.
