One former and one current student at UTC were arrested after they were caught on camera breaking into university apartments and coming out with stolen items back in November.
Surveillance video footage shows Josue Moore Brown and Fernando Cifuentes Jr. walking down the halls of the apartment building on University Street and looking for unlocked doors, UTC Police said.
According to police, when they finally found one, it was the apartment of Jovana Pecovski. She told police that a white laptop and a longboard had been taken from the common room. Together, these items were valued at over $800.
When police checked the surveillance tapes, they saw the two men carrying these items that matched her description. They also said the men went into another apartment a few doors down.
According to the report, Brown told police that he and Cifuentes sold both the laptop and the longboard. However, Chattanooga Police Officer Matthew Holzmacher managed to recover them both.
Brown was arrested on Nov. 20, but Cifuentes was just caught in Athens, Tn., last Friday.
Both men were charged with aggravated burglary.
