A Shandon man was arrested after investigators reportedly found stolen property in his home Friday, nearly two weeks after he was arrested during another burglary in Paso Robles.

On Sept. 27, a business owner in the 500 block of Linne Road in Paso Robles called police at 9 a.m. to say a man who had been trespassing on the property was being detained. The man, later identified as Frank Woodrow Lawrence, 43, was arrested on suspicion of commercial burglary and possession of burglary tools.

Lawrence was booked at County Jail and later released after posting bail.

On Sept. 28, a business owner in the 600 block of Creston Road reported that an RV parked on his property had been burglarized. The RV had also been set on fire.

Investigators said that Lawrence had stolen property from the RV when he was arrested, but because the crime had not yet been reported, officers were unaware of it.

A search warrant was served at Lawrence's home at 7 a.m. Friday. Stolen property from the RV was reportedly found in his home.

Lawrence was arrested on suspicion of burglary, possession of stolen property and arson and booked into County Jail.
