A man was arrested after police say he stole a backpack from the Housing Authority of El Paso building.

Ricardo Rodriguez, 51, went to the Housing Authority building on Paisano Drive earlier this month. Investigators said while inside the facility, he walked into a secured area where individual offices are located and took a backpack before leaving.

Rodriguez was arrested Tuesday. He was charged with burglary of a building and booked into the El Paso County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
