On April 3, 2019, a student was contacted by an unidentified male via social media who offered to return her stolen wallet for a fee. The student had not reported the wallet theft to DPS. The student agreed and during the return of her property, the student secretly photographed the unidentified male. The student then contacted DPS.
DPS detectives made a comparison of the suspect’s photo with previous surveillance video of a man suspected of committing several residential burglaries. DPS officers located the suspect and arrested him for the crimes. The suspect was transported to LAPD for booking on felony charges.
