Crime brief

Sears burglary

A Campbell man was arrested for burglary outside of the Sears department store in the San Antonio Shopping Center on March 16, police said.

The man, identified as 42-year-old Randy Davis, a transient, was seen by a Sears loss prevention agent transferring several articles of clothing from a shopping cart into a duffle bag from the store. The loss prevention agent had already notified police when Davis ran out of the store, saw an officer, and then ran into the loading dock area and attempted to hide beneath a trailer. Davis was easily found and arrested by the officer, according to police spokeswoman Liz Wylie.

When the arresting officers located the bag Davis carried out of the store, they found $352 worth of clothing: five pairs of jeans, one pair of socks and a San Francisco Giants jersey. Davis had no form of payment on him, leading police to believe he intended to shoplift before he entered the store, which categorizes the attempt as burglary instead of theft.

Davis had an outstanding parole hold warrant for a previous narcotics conviction. He was booked into county jail for the burglary and the warrant.

A rape was reported in the 100 block of West Dana Street on Monday, police said.

Police spokeswoman Liz Wylie said she could not provide any more information, but acknowledged that a woman is alleging she was raped by a man at her home.

"We do not at all believe there is any threat to the community at this time," Wylie said.
