The suspect had copies of keys to break in, police say
FRESNO, California - A man was jailed Tuesday after a burglary, and he was later found to have been caught on surveillance video dancing during a break in, the Fresno Police Department said Friday.
Around 10:10 a.m., officers responded to a suspicious subject who had accessed a locked commercial building in the area of Shaw and Hughes avenues and walked away, police said.
A tenant in the building had just reported a theft of a laptop from over the weekend, and there was no sign of a break in.
The suspicious subject was contacted a short distance away and was found to be in possession of the stolen laptop, police said. The suspect was in possession of several keys as well. One of the keys opened the building doors and another key opened the victim`s office suite where the laptop had been taken.
Police said he gave a false name, and it was later found that he had several warrants for his arrest.
David Seale, 43, was booked on charges of possession of the stolen property and providing false information.
Detectives later went through three days of video from the business and found the suspect using a set of keys to enter the building during the late and early morning hours over the weekend, police said. The suspect was also seen entering the victim's office suite with a key and walking out with the stolen laptop.
Seale was additionally charged with commercial burglary.
It is unknown where the suspect obtained the copies of the keys.
