Police said they arrested Taji Mikel Webb for aggravated burglary after fingerprints linked him to a break-in at 1404 Kirby Ave.
Webb, 20, of 1109 S. Greenwood, is charged with aggravated burglary.
Police said on June 11, Webb forced open a bedroom window at the home of Ruth Kaiser on Kirby Avenue.
He went inside and took a Dell laptop computer.
An officer lifted latent fingerprints from the window and those were positively identified as those of Webb, police said.
Webb was out despite pleading guilty to another aggravated burglary last year and getting a three-year prison sentence.
