APD: Neighbor flees with woman’s TVs
An Anchorage woman who had two televisions stolen from her apartment didn’t have to look far for them, according to police – who say the culprit was her next-door neighbor.
Dominic Debonneville, 52, is charged with felony counts of theft and burglary in the case, according to court records.
A criminal complaint, filed by APD Officer Gregory Beatty, says losses from the June 2 incident on West 26th Avenue included the TVs, three credit cards, jewelry and documents.
After the victim filed a report with APD, officers reviewed surveillance video from inside the building, which Beatty said “clearly shows” Debonneville taking a television from the victim’s residence into his adjacent apartment.
“[The victim] looked into Debonneville’s apartment and recognized her TVs,” Beatty wrote. “[She] even turned on (one of) the TVs on with its remote control.”
Debonneville’s criminal record includes multiple misdemeanor convictions for assault, disorderly conduct and indecent exposure. In 2011, he was convicted of felony evidence tampering in a case involving the revocation of his probation.
Court records show Debonneville was arraigned Monday, with his bail initially set at a total of $750.
