Burglary attempt suspect identified using surveillance cameras

A man was arrested for an attempted business burglary after cameras on the property caught clear images of him committing the crime.

An employee of Curley’s Coffee  reported to work early Saturday and found evidence of the break in attempt. It appeared someone had tried to pry open a door and a window, doing approximately $500 in damage to the property in the process.

Deputies and detectives responded  to investigate. Cameras caught images of a man Sgt. Marc Maison and Detective Mike Selicki recognized as 49 year old Todd Matthis from prior law enforcement contact. Matthis had a crow bar in his hand, was carrying a bag over his shoulder and had something covering his hands during the break in.

When they interviewed Matthis at his home near the coffee shop, they found a shirt with the same design as one worn in the video by the suspect. They also found a bag, a crow bar and two dark colored socks which appeared to be what he was wearing on his hands in the video. Matthis was arrested, charged with attempted burglary, criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools.
