PD: Suspect sought in Mesa theft of laptops with years of research data

MESA, AZ - Authorities are looking for a suspect who broke into a Mesa home and stole two computers, police say.

Officialts said that between March 13-14, a suspect broke into a home near Baseline and Alma School roads and stole several items, including two computers.

The homeowner is distraught because one of the computer contains several years worth of research data, according to the release.

Police said the suspect went to the Apple Store in Chandler Mall under the name "Manuel Mendoza" and requested that one of the computer's passwords be reset.

That request was denied by store employees and the suspect left. Surveillance video captured the suspect leaving in a silver Chrysler 300 car.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, between the ages of 20-25, 5 feet 8 inches and was wearing a white long-sleeve shirt, tan pants and black tennis shoes.

The vehicle has tinted windows and potentially some sort of tag in a rear window.

Anyone who knows the suspect's identity is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-Witness.
