INDIO, Calif. -

An Indio man suspected in thefts around the Coachella Valley was behind bars today.

Salahaldeen Alwishah, 25, was arrested in Indio in the 82800 block of Avenue 44 about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, sheriff's Sgt. Brad Farwell said.

Shortly after 8 a.m. that morning, a burglary was reported in the 37700 block of Hollister Drive in Palm Desert, and the investigation led authorities to a market on Avenue 44 in Indio, Farwell said.

Alwishah, a market employee, had ``numerous'' stolen items, including items stolen from the Palm Desert residence, he said.

``Additional confirmed stolen property from thefts in the cities of Palm Springs, Indio and Coachella was also recovered inside the market,'' Farwell said. No information was made available about the other crimes.

Alwishah was jailed in Indio in lieu of $5,000 bail, according to jail records.
