Between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday, a suspect broke into a home on the 1600 block of Russell Street while the residents were away and took a laptop among other items, according to a Berkeley Police Department Nixle alert.

With the tracking software on the laptop, Berkeley police were able to locate the laptop at a residence on the 1000 block of Virginia Street. After further investigation, officers located the suspect about a block away, according to the alert.

While speaking with the suspect — a 48-year-old man — officers learned that he was on parole and had some methamphetamine in his wallet. The suspect was then arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance and violation of parole.
