Young was released on bail the next day, but four search warrants were executed at a residence and three commercial storage lockers.

"I don't think we've ever come across this sheer volume of items, at least linked to one individual," Hwang said.

It has been difficult connecting the stolen items with their original owners, he said.

"One of the big problems that we have in Richmond is a lot of the items that are stolen, the owners are not here," Hwang said, adding investigators are considering whether homes which appeared vacant were specifically targeted.
