Burglar From Cruzio Identified - Our "Most Wanted" This Week

This week's "Most Wanted" suspect has been identified as the Burglar from the Cruzio building at Cedar and Church Street.  The suspect is

Gerald Wayne Elliott II - 30 Years Old
Addresses in Santa Cruz County and Vallejo, CA

There is currently a warrant for Elliott charging several counts of commercial burglary.  The bail amount on the warrant is $75,000
The burglary occurred in May 2013 where laptops and tablets were taken amounting to several thousands of dollars lost. 

Working with only these security camera images, Detective Paul DeOcampo worked his magic.  

Detective DeOcampo continued to dig, using informants, developing clues and collaborating with detectives from the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office.   Eventually, DeOcampo was able to positively identify Elliott as the suspect.

Great teamwork by the two agencies.
