BERKELEY -- Detectives serving an arrest warrant Wednesday morning at a North Oakland home for a man wanted for attempted auto burglary found two stolen motorcycles on the premises, police said.

One of the motorcycles recovered was reported stolen in Berkeley in 2009 and the other was taken from Hayward, although when the theft happened was not immediately confirmed.

Arrested by Berkeley police on suspicion of vehicle theft, attempted auto burglary and violating probation was Warren Horton, 25, who was found about 7:15 a.m. at his home in the 500 block of 62nd Street in North Oakland, police said.

Berkeley police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer Coats said Horton was sought in an attempted auto burglary case that happened July 11 at a garage in the 2400 block of Durant Street. The break-in failed but it was captured on video in the garage which led police to identify Horton as the suspect, Coats said.

The investigation is continuing.
