SPD nabs a hatless burglar
The officers responded to a burglar alarm at the Advantage Rental company located at 800 Main St. in Susanville about 11:57 p.m. on Tuesday Sept. 11. Upon arrival, they found a back door had been pried open.
A check of the interior revealed the suspect had unsuccessfully attempted to break open a jewelry case. Some petty cash also was missing.
Police got a big break in the case when the owners arrived and identified a hat the alleged suspect had left behind — a hat the owners recognized as belonging to McDonald, a former employee at the company who had recently been terminated.
Investigating officers found McDonald in a hotel room a short distance away from the company. During a search of his hotel room, officers discovered the stolen property and other evidence connecting the alleged suspect to the crime scene.
The investigation continues, and the case has been referred to the Lassen County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
Following his arrest, McDonald was booked at the Lassen County Adult Detention Facility on charges of commercial burglary and held on $30,000 bail.
