WESTWOOD (CBSLA.com) —UCLA campus police Wednesday planned to release the name of man detained in theft of 55 Apple laptops from a campus building.
The unidentified suspect was taken into custody Tuesday.
The theft of the computers valued at $33,000 occurred overnight Saturday at the Charles E. Young Research Library and was captured on surveillance video, authorities said.
According to authorities, the suspect smashed a ground-level window before breaking a window to the storage room where the laptops were kept and loaned to library patrons.
It was reported Monday that police believed the culprit was similar in appearance to a man caught on camera stealing two laptops from the Ackerman Student Union in September.
The case remains under investigation.
