The Shasta County Sheriff's Office was looking for information about a man caught on surveillance footage who they believed was involved in a residential burglary in Happy Valley.

After receiving tips from the public, prior jail booking photos were used to identify the suspect, who is currently incarcerated at the Shasta County Jail for an unrelated crime.

The residential burglary was reported on May 29.

The suspect's name is not being released pending further investigation.
