Police were investigating the theft of two police buildings from a former building in Marietta, Georgia, in which a suspect allegedly stole a computer, a police vehicle and a computer hard drive.
Authorities say the suspect, a man in his 50s, was arrested and charged with theft and other charges.
“At this time, we believe that there is no evidence to support the suspect’s statements,” said Marieta police Chief Mark Davis.
The suspect was arrested at the building, which houses a police station and police computers, after a three-hour search on Sunday.
A spokesman for Marietatas police department said the two buildings were on the property where police were investigating a theft that took place on Tuesday.
Marietta police said a surveillance camera caught the suspect entering the building and exiting the building around 3:15 a.m. after stealing two computers, a laptop computer, an iPad, a camera and other items.
Police said the suspect left the building in a vehicle, and is described as being in his late 30s to early 40s with a medium build and a thin build.
He was wearing a grey shirt and blue jeans.
This was not a random act, Davis said.
He said investigators were asking anyone who witnessed the theft or who knows anyone who may have seen the suspect to contact the Mariettas police Department at 910-834-7100.
The property, located at 3100 East Franklin Avenue, is about two miles east of Marietah, Georgia.
