UOPD: Suspect swiped more iMacs from law school
Police think the same man stole a computer from the law school in May 2012, then returned over Labor Day weekend 2013 to steal two more.

EUGENE, Ore. - A man suspected of stealing a computer from the University of Oregon law school last year returned over the Labor Day weekend and made off with two more machines, the UO Police Department said.

The man stole two Apple iMacs valued at $2,500 from officers at the School of Law on Agate Street August 31 and September 1, police said.

The same man is suspected of stealing an iMac worth $1,500 from the same building in May 2012, police said.

Security camera footage shows the computers being taken by a white man, about 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, 230 to 260 pounds, with short brown hair and a goatee. The man was wearing wire frame glasses, a beige baseball cap, khaki shorts, a printed short-sleeve button-front shirt, white socks and low-top tan and black hiking shoes.

Anyone with information about the theft or the suspect should contact the department at (541) 346-2919.

Security camera footage helped lead to the arrest of two suspects in a pair of unrelated thefts of three iMac computers from the UO School of Music and Dance in July.

With images provided by UOPD, local law enforcement agencies were able to identify Matthew Roy Sosa, 29, and arrest him on charges of second-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree theft and first-degree criminal mischief. Police also arrested Frank Thanh Nguyen, 38, on a charge of second-degree criminal trespass.
