SANTA ROSA (KRON)—Police arrested a burglary suspect accused of breaking into a Sonoma County office in Santa Rosa and allegedly posed as an employee before stealing several items Sunday morning.
Officers responded to a call from an employee at the Sonoma County Counsel Office at Administration Office around 8:50 a.m., police said.
The employee reported a man was inside the office wearing a suit and claiming he worked there.
The caller said she knew the man was lying because no one was allowed to be inside the building when the offices are closed.
Officers found the man had ransacked one office and entered several others.
When police looked nearby, they found the suspect. They discovered he had stolen at least two suits, a book and an suit jacket from an office, police said.
The employee who reported the incident was able to positively identify the man police found as the man who allegedly broke into the building.
Police have identified the suspect as 25-year-old Seth Bolster.
During the course of their investigation, police found Bolster did not compromise any confidential information during the burglary.
Bolster was arrested on suspicion of burglary and violation of parole.
