A Gulfport teenager has been arrested on a burglary of a business charge after surveillance video showed him taking electronics from a downtown Gulfport law firm, police say.
Xavier Olagawon Dawkins, 19, was arrested Tuesday.
Dawkins broke into Davis & Crump on 14th Street on Feb. 28, police say. Police were called to the law firm the next morning after the burglary was reported.
A spokeswoman for the law firm said the man took “several thousand dollars” worth of electronics from the office, including an Apple laptop and charger and a Sony laptop.
