Self-Storage Burglar in CA Caught on Video, Arrested


A man in Ridgecrest, Calif., was arrested Tuesday after video surveillance showed him breaking into a unit at a self-storage facility.

Samson Pappe, 22, is charged with the Sept. 13 burglary at Ridgecrest Self Storage. A tenant of the facility told police he was contacted by the self-storage operator after someone used a code to enter the facility that did not match the code assigned to his unit. The lock on the unit had been cut and replaced with another lock.

After reviewing video surveillance, police identified Pappe as the burglar. Pappe is currently on probation for possession of a dangerous weapon. He’s being held on a $30,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 27.
