Why isn't he arrested?: Man wants suspect in custody.


A Carmichael man with video and identification of a man who allegedly broke into his apartment Wednesday wants to know why the suspect isn't under arrest.

"I got his face, got pictures of his tattoos, found his Facebook and everything, got his full name, phone number," said John Best, of the suspect who broke into his apartment Wednesday.

The male suspect smashed out a bedroom window before ransacking Best's place and stealing a Playstation Four and other items.

"Here's him trying to sell the Playstation Four he stole from me here for $350.00 or best offer," Best said, pointing to the suspect's Facebook page.

Best was able to recognize the suspect in his security camera video as a man who'd visited his apartment with a friend a week before the break-in. But he claims detectives seem less than eager to solve the case.
