Shawn Baptisto, 33, was arrested by Maricopa Police on Feb. 3 for violation of court order, theft and criminal damage after he entered a home on West Edwards Circle without permission.
According to an MPD probable cause statement, Baptisto entered the property in violation of an existing protection order and he allegedly used an unknown object to break a small padlock on a cabinet on the back patio. Police state in their report that he took “a small electrical sander” out of the cabinet, which was later identified as his property by the victim of the crime.
He also took a “turquoise beach cruiser bike belonging to the victim from the property and left the premise,” according to the probable cause statement.
While en route to the scene, officers located Baptisto with the bike. He was booked into the Pinal County Jail, and the bike was returned to the victim.
