On September 27, 2009, around 7:23 a.m., Officers Jeff Derico and Richard Leese responded to an alarm activation at a Golf Club Lane business. Upon arrival, they found the business had been broken into. Lawn and garden equipment and a computer and components were taken. They reviewed a security video and saw a male carrying the stolen items from the building and the direction he headed. Furthermore, they were able to identify the suspect as, ANTOINE CARDET SMITH. Officers looked in the area in the direction where they saw Smith walking in the video; they found a computer sitting behind another business. The officers briefly left the equipment to retrieve a camera to take photos of the stolen property. When Officer Leese returned, he found SMITH trying to stuff the computer in a duffle bag.
