3rd Best Buy burglary suspect arrested
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The third suspect in the Sunday morning burglary of a Gainesville Best Buy has been arrested in Jacksonville, police announced on Twitter on Monday.
The Gainesville Police Department responded to an alarm at the business just after 3 p.m. Sunday. The arriving officer saw a man entering the store through a hole in a wall that had been made by a sledgehammer.
Meanwhile, another person fled on foot.
Officers were able to capture William Brookins, 16, as he tried to run out of a door of the building. Officers also found a stolen vehicle that was used by the suspects in the burglary.
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office and University of Florida Police Department assisted in the search for one of the other suspects and were able to locate Breyon Gilbert, 22.
After interviews with Gilbert and Brookins, police were able to confirm the third suspect's identification as 24-year-old Norris Richardson, of Jacksonville, who they believe was driving the other suspects.
Police recovered about $27,000 in computers and iPads.
Gilbert was also arrested in 2011 for committing burglary at a Jacksonville Best Buy.
