The Seal Beach Police Department is requesting the public’s

assistance in identifying two commercial burglary suspects who stole cellular phones
and other electronics from a T-Mobile store.


On October 20, 2020 at about 5:15 pm, the Seal Beach Police Department received a
call of a commercial burglary which occurred at the T-Mobile store located at 13979
Seal Beach Boulevard. Three suspects entered the store, forcefully removed
electronics which were secured via cables to the display shelves, and exited the store
moments later (see attached video and still photos). The loss was approximately
$4,000 worth of electronics.


A responding officer located a vehicle driving away from the location and stopped the
car. The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, identified later as Ali Dawson, age 18,
of Los Angeles was arrested for felony commercial burglary. He was later booked at
the Orange County Jail. The other two unknown suspects are believed to have fled the
location in another vehicle. Their identities and whereabouts are unknown at this time.


Further investigation revealed that Ali Dawson is also a named suspect in multiple other
crimes of a similar nature committed around Southern California.


This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with any information is asked to contact

Detective Jorge Muniz at or (562) 799-4100 ext. 1108.
