He allegedly drank almost all the alcohol stored in a liquor cabinet and took items from the refrigerator. Investigators reviewed the surveillance video and recognized Brand as someone they arrested earlier in the morning on the day of the burglary at a different location. 

Surveillance footage appears to show an intruder walking inside and outside the home. 

“Makes me a little bit on guard,” one of the homeowners told the news outlet.
