The officer recognized the suspect, 20-year-old Anthony William Thomas, as the person wanted in connection to a burglary that occurred at an Atascadero business two days earlier, according to the city’s police department.

Officers found Thomas in possession of burglary tools. Police arrested Thomas on a charge of burglary, as well as for multiple warrants, and booked him in San Luis Obispo County Jail.
