Police have arrested a man in connection with a burglary last month involving two units at American Self Storage in Paradise, Calif. Video surveillance aided authorities in identifying the theft at 9100 Skyway, according to the source.
Footage shows Allen Petty, 48, cutting a lock from a unit on Feb. 17 and replacing it with his own. He returned to the facility several times the same day to remove items from the space. Six days later, he cut the lock from a second unit, then left the facility. When he returned several hours later, he was accompanied by three people, who believed they were helping him move items for a friend, the source reported.
Police arrived and detained all four suspects for questioning but released two of them. The third, David Neeley, 40, was arrested for a parole violation.
Petty was arrested on charges of possession of burglary tools, four counts of burglary and one count of attempted burglary.
