Details

An officer, responding to a possible burglary in progress, first thought he was seeing trash bags near the back of the Office Depot, 676 S. Whitney Way. He then realized it was unconscious man. There was a can Office Depot cleaning duster at his feet, and another in his hand. Next to the suspect was a backpack containing a stolen camcorder, and another can of cleaning duster. Immediately, the officer became concerned for the man's welfare, knowing that "huffing" such substances can be fatal. He was able to bring the man around, and the 25-year old Middleton man immediately began struggling with responding officers.

They had been called to the Office Depot after a front window was found smashed out. The suspect would ultimately be arrested for two burglaries to the same store: the one that happened last night, and a similar break-in that occurred on August 26th. In the prior burglary cans of aerosol computer duster were also taken.
