At about 1:25 p.m. on February 17,

A construction site manager working in the 1300 block of Pacific Coast Highway called police to report a suspicious looking male trying the doors of several residences as he walked southbound. The suspect, described as a male, white, in his 40s, with long dark hair and wearing jeans, was last seen by the reporting party possibly making entry into the residence just south of the construction site. Multiple officers responded and created a perimeter around the house. A K9 officer coordinated a search of the interior of the house. The suspect was discovered hiding in a bathroom in the bottom floor bedroom and eventually complied with orders to come out – the suspect’s hair was still wet from taking a shower. The suspect was arrested for burglary and transported to the Santa Monica jail.

David Leonard Bizgia, 32, homeless, had bail set at $50,000.
