A spike in daytime residential burglaries on the Westside during October had detectives scratching their heads. That was until October 16th when a fingerprint from a recovered cell phone taken in a Santa Monica burglary led back to parolee Daniel Perez. Later that day, another burglary in West Los Angeles was connected to Perez.

In all, he's believed to be involved with at least 21 burglaries, according to the LA Times.
