Whoever said that stealing is dull? Apparently, not an individual from California who was caught on tape doing the victory dance before swiping a computer. The California burglar put on quite a performance of the authorities who later rewarded him with a pair of handcuffs and several charges.
California Burglar Scoped the Building Days Before the Hit
Last week, the authorities arrested David Seale, a 43-year-old California resident. The man was charged with multiple counts, including burglary, providing fake information, and possessing stolen property.
Interestingly enough, Seale’s artistic side was what landed him in jail, according to a Fresno County Police spokesperson.
As the story goes, Seale spent several days scoping out an office building. Before setting his plan in motion, the California burglar obtained the original front door key and made copies. He used these keys to gain access to the building.
On Tuesday, after closing time, Seale used one of these fake keys to waltz through the front door. Instead of getting the job done and scatter, the California burglar remained near the front door and danced.
For a minute or so, Seale broke into breakdance. After that, he simply went into an office, swiped a laptop, and left the building.
Unfortunately for him, the performance caught the attention of the authorities who moved in to seize the suspect.
According to a Fresno Police Department spokesperson, the suspect was caught several blocks away from the office building. He appeared to check out his new laptop.
When approached by authorities, the California burglar gave a fake name. A quick background check revealed that the individual was wanted for parole violation.
Seale was charged with commercial burglary, possessing stolen items, and giving false information. He’s being held in county jail without bail.
