Burglar Caught Stealing From Neighbor’s Apartment

At about 1:16 a.m. on Friday a female resident in the 800 block of Boysen Street was asleep on a downstairs couch when she heard the front door to her apartment open.  She immediately ran upstairs and called 911.  

Our officers arrived moments later and found the front door to her apartment open.  The officers spotted a burglar in the downstairs area of the apartment.  The burglar had a laptop computer in his hand.  The burglar was identified as 22-year-old Conor Sullivan. Sullivan was taken into custody without incident.

During the investigation the officers learned that when they caught Sullivan in the victim’s apartment it was actually his second trip into the apartment to steal more property.  Sullivan told the police that he found a key to the victim’s apartment about two months ago in the parking lot.  Sullivan used the key this morning to enter the locked apartment.  

All of the property that Sullivan stole was recovered from his apartment, which was two doors away from the victim’s apartment.

Sullivan was arrested for burglary and was booked at SLO County jail. Sullivan’s bail is $50,000.
