Police traced a stolen laptop computer at a pawn shop.

A Bowie man was arrested by the Prince George’s County Sheriff's Department on Wednesday and is facing charges in connection with a May 2012 burglary.

According to the sheriff’s department, Bowie police obtained a warrant for Nicholas E. Scott, 22, after he allegedly stole a laptop computer from a home in the 14000 block of Darbydale Lane in Bowie on May 2, 2012.

Bowie police obtained the warrant after investigating pawn shop records and finding that the stolen laptop had been pawned by Scott at a shop in Landover on May 14, police said.

Sheriff's deputies investigating Scott learned his whereabouts to be in the 3300 block of Kenilworth Avenue in Bladensburg. Police said the suspect was arrested without incident and transferred to the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections and charged with first-degree burglary, malicious destruction of property and misdemeanor theft.

Scott is being held on $10,000 bond.
