An Iowa State University student who was a type of manager for an on-campus student apartment building is accused of burglarizing several apartments he was to overlook. I-S-U Police Captain Gene Deisinger says investigators have been following the series of burglaries at the Frederiksen Court Apartments for weeks, before they got a break on January 14 when some residents found 22-year-old David Breitwisch the C-A or community advisor for the apartments in their appartment without any apparent reason. He says they didn’t think anything of it until they noticed reports of stolen items in the paper.Breitwisch is an I-S-U senior in computer engineering from Marion. He’s the C-A or community advisor for the apartments and is now charged with several counts of burglary and theft. Captain Deisinger says because he was a C-A, Breitwisch had easy access to the various apartments with keys he had or could check out.Deisinger says a search warrant was obtained and I-S-U police found a wealth of goods in Breitwisch’s apartment that included dozens of DVDs, computer software, Walkmans, MP-3 players and other electronics, calculators, backpacks, and more. Breitwisch was arrested Tuesday night and taken to the Story County Jail, pending a 35-thousand dollar bond.
