Basketball Burglar is Identified

I can just hear Santa Cruz Warriors play-by-play man Kevin Danna calling this one like an inside dish from Cameron Jones to Hilton Armstrong for the dunk. 

“Patrol Officers swing the pass wide to the community.  The community dishes the tip inside to the detectives for a spin move and the two-hand jam over the suspect”…. and the crowd goes crazy!!!!

He’s even looking up like he is getting dunked on in this photo. 

Our “Basketball Burglar” has been identified as:

Jeffrey Blan – 38 years old

We first featured the surveillance image of him on March 25th.  Yesterday, our detectives obtained a warrant for his arrest behind this burglary. 

Mr. Blan is a well-seasoned veteran of police contacts and arrests dating all the way back to 2001.   

Mr. Blan is not yet in custody and we are looking for him. 

Here is your chance to increase your “assist” stats and help us locate him.  We have checked all of his family locations and word on the street is that he is transient right now.   If you know where he is give a call or submit an anonymous tip via our SMS text a tip, smartphone app or Website. 

Once again, thanks to the teamwork of your tips, our street-savvy officers and good detective work – this one will go into the win column.
