Burglary suspect captured

San Luis Obispo Police arrested a man for allegedly breaking into a vehicle Tuesday night.

Michael Bowling

Police say they received a call after 9 p.m. regarding a resident on the 500 block of Dana Street who heard a loud bang coming from the front of the residence. Police say the resident went outside and discovered someone had just shattered a window on his roommate’s car. The resident reportedly saw a person in the area riding a bicycle and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a camel pack on his back, and provided police with a suspect description.

According to SLOPD, officers searched the area for the suspect and located an abandoned bicycle in Mission Plaza that matched the description of the bicycle that the witness observed. The officer also found a black hooded sweatshirt and a camel pack with the bicycle, and pieces of glass on the sweatshirt.

According to SLODP, a few minutes later an officer contacted a male subject walking in Mission Plaza who fit the suspect description. Police say this person was identified as Michael Bowling. The officer found shattered glass in Bowling’s pocket. Bowling was arrested for burglary and was booked at the county jail. His bail is set at $50,000.
