Suspect accused of stealing computers, food and booze

A man broke into a valley home and stole more than just thousands of dollars in computers.

All that's left of Henry Johnson's home office are bare wires where his multiple computers and electronics once sat.  Everything was stolen just a few days ago.

"All my electronics were gone, all my computers, all my laptops.. my drawers were pulled out.. everything taken out of them," he said.

Johnson estimates more than $20,000 worth of equipment and computer programs he uses as a map maker were stolen.

His neighbors' home security camera captured video of a man lurking around homes in the area around the time Johnson's house was burglarized.  He believes this may be the man behind the break-in.

Once inside, Johnson says the burglar tore through closets, cabinets, drank his vodka and beer, then smashed the bottles on the floor.  He even ate leftovers.

"He went into the dairy door in the fridge and he took six pounds of the cheese," said Johnson.

What's most upsetting for this young family is many pictures dating back 10 to 15 years, which were stored on external hard drives are all gone.

"We can never get that back.  That's why it's really hard. I think that's what's most violating, he took things we can't get back," said Stacee Parker.

Johnson is now working with his company to try and restore his work, but most projects he's worked countless hours on are all gone.

"I hope he gets caught," said Parker.
