Surveillance cameras captured the suspect, later identified as Monroe, entering employee-only areas of both buildings, Stocking said.
At one of the buildings, Monroe was allegedly “piggy-backing” one of the employees who used an access card to get through locked doors, according to Stocking.
Once Monroe was inside, he allegedly stole wallets and other valuables in unoccupied offices during regular business hours, the detective said.READ MORE: San Francisco Reverses Ban On Collecting Data On Sexual Orientation Of City Workers
Monroe had been out on $100,000 bail when he committed the alleged burglaries, according to police.
Pleasanton police detectives spotted Monroe as he was leaving the Wiley Manuel Courthouse in Oakland on Thursday when he was arrested on suspicion of burglary and committing a felony while released on bail for a previous felony, Stocking said.
He was booked into Santa Rita Jail, police said.
