The suspect, who has no permanent address, was apprehended about 9 a.m. after he was seen stealing an iPod from a vehicle at the hospital near 42nd and Dewey Streets. He was later booked into the Douglas County Correctional Center for burglary, destruction of property, theft from a vehicle, possession of burglary tools, possession of drug equipment and possession of a stolen credit card.
Officer Jacob Bettin, a spokesman for the Omaha Police Department, said hospital security caught the suspect during a foot pursuit after witnessing the vehicle break-in. During the chase, the suspect was seen dropping laptop computers from a backpack.
Police officers determined the computers were property of a business located near 48th and Dodge Streets that had been burglarized overnight. The officers also discovered the suspect had drug paraphernalia and a stolen credit card in his possession.
