Investigators have identified a 20-year-old man as a suspect in six different San Francisco commercial burglaries within an eight-week period, police announced Thursday.

In the most recent incident, San Francisco resident Javon Neal is accused of entering a business in the 200 block of Market Street on March 26 and taking a laptop computer.

Neal, who was already in custody when he was identified as the suspect in the March 26 burglary, was previously arrested in late March in connection with five other alleged burglaries throughout the city that occurred between Jan. 29 and March 26.

In those burglaries, Neal is accused of taking nearly $14,000 worth of electronics.

Neal, who was already on probation when the alleged burglaries occurred, has been charged with more than a dozen counts of theft and second-degree burglary. He’s being held on $105,000 bail, according to jail records.

Police are continuing to investigate the burglaries and anyone with information is asked to contact police at (415) 575-4444 or to text a tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message. Tipsters have the option of remaining anonymous.
