SAN DIEGO - A local woman says she is relieved a suspect has been arrested in her theft case, but is frustrated he was on the streets in the first place.

"The officer on my case was incredible. So grateful. When I looked into his background, there was another feeling: outrage," said Simran Noon.

In November, surveillance video shows a man casing Noon's home in University Heights, before he walked hopped a fence, went into her bedroom and stole a dresser full of jewelry, many of the pieces family heirlooms.

Noon started digging into the suspect's background, going from courthouse to courthouse to track down his records.  She says what she found was an extensive criminal past before and after her crime.

"He didn't belong out there, hurting people just living their lives," said Noon.
