Anderson was recognized as a suspect in the burglaries and other property offenses by detectives. They also discovered Anderson and his associates selling narcotics from his home on the 5000 block of Dolores Dr.
On October 26, a search warrant was issued for Anderson’s residence, and officers discovered stolen weapons, cars, and other stolen items on the property.
