Burglary, Carrying a Concealed Weapon; Criminal Damage to Property; Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
On 11/10/12 at about 12:40am MPD officers responded to the Mobil Gas Station at 901 South Gammon Road for an alarm.
Responding officers discovered that the business had been burglarized.
Officers reviewed video from the business, which showed the suspect making entry and stealing items.
About two hours later, an MPD officer on patrol in the area observed the suspect - who he recognized from the video - on foot in the area. The suspect was detained, and later confessed to the burglary. He also had items stolen in the burglary on his person at the time he was arrested.
