A 41-year-old parolee is back behind bars today (July 10) on suspicion of burglarizing dozens of motorhomes in the San Marcos, Calif., area between September and December of last year, authorities told KGTV, San Diego.
Michael Baker was arrested Thursday morning at his home after his DNA was found at two of the crime scenes, according to San Diego County sheriff’s Sgt. Tom Bulow.
Detectives seized numerous items believed to have been taken during the burglary spree, including 10 flat screen televisions, laptop computers and tools, Bulow said. Crystal methamphetamine, marijuana, needles and syringes, a prescription for Vicodin in the name of a current state prison inmate, a replica air soft handgun and rolls of copper wire were also found in Baker’s home and shed, Bulow said.
Baker’s girlfriend, Tracey Linn, 31, was with him at the time of his arrest and was also taken into custody on suspicion of drug possession and possession of hypodermic syringes and needles, according to Bulow.
She and Baker were both booked into the Vista jail.
