SDSU Student Charged With 4 Felonies

At 12:59 p.m. on Wednesday Feb. 12, a San Diego State student was arrested for stealing 10 textbooks from the SDSU Bookstore. The stolen merchandise was worth a combined total of $1,419.21, San Diego State Police Department Capt. Joshua Mays said.

The 20-year-old male was charged with four felony counts, including seconddegree burglary, grand theft, possession of a dangerous weapon, and concealing a dangerous weapon, Mays said.

In the state of California, burglary is defined as entering a structure with the intention of stealing an item, according to penal code.

Because the total price of the merchandise stolen exceeded $950 the crime is classified as grand theft, Mays said.

The suspect was detained by loss prevention before he was transported to San Diego County Jail by SDSUPD. He is currently awaiting his first court appearance.
