Viewers saw the surveillance footage October 7th and 8th on KBTX. Now, police say the man in that Crime Stoppers video has been arrested.

35-year-old James Black was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of burglary of building.

Police believe Black broke into the Galleria building in June, and walked out with a computer monitor and plasma TV.

Officers say Black was caught again on tape carrying stolen property from the same building, in September.

Bryan Police say the day after the Crime Stoppers segment ran, they received six anonymous tips.

Investigators say Black admitted to entering the building, but says he left the items by a dumpster at the nearby Appletree Market, and that all of the items were gone when he went back for them.
