AZ Central reported:
Phoenix police have identified the man arrested in connection with the break-in of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs’ campaign headquarters in Phoenix.
That man, Daniel Mota Dos Reis, 36, was already in jail. He was first arrested Wednesday morning for a separate commercial burglary, according to a police statement.
The break-in at Hobbs’ office was reported to police on Tuesday afternoon, and police said it occurred sometime the night before.
An officer saw images of Mota Dos Reis on the news on Wednesday night and recognized him from the prior incident, the police statement said. The officer reached out to the jail and the department rearrested him.
He was booked on suspicion of third-degree burglary, the police statement said.
It isn’t clear what was taken from the campaign office, but Mota Dos Reis had a backpack with tools used for burglaries along with a new camera when he was first arrested Wednesday.
