A man, suspected of recently burglarizing the Santa Cruz Warriors facility and stealing team gear and cash, has reportedly been identified due to a surveillance photo released last week by the Santa Cruz Police Department.

Santa Cruz' purported "basketball burglar" is Jeffrey Blan, 38, according to police.

The surveillance image released March 25 from the Warriors' Kaiser Permanente Arena resulted in tips and now Santa Cruz detectives obtained a warrant for his arrest behind this burglary, police said. 

Blan is not yet in custody, but officers are looking for him, police said.  

Anyone with information is encouraged to call officers or submit an anonymous tip via SMS text a tip, smartphone app or on the police website. 

A quote from SCPD:  “Patrol officers swing the pass wide to the community.  The community dishes the tip inside to the detectives for a spin move and the two-hand jam over the suspect”…. and the crowd goes crazy!!!!"
