He was also arrested on warrants for defacing property and unarmed burglary. According to a police report, Salamanca-Flores is accused of having two stolen laptops. The two victims who owned the laptops noticed the computers were missing when their smart phones alerted them to strange Facebook status updates someone was making on their accounts, according to the report. They looked around for their laptops and soon realized the were stolen, the report says. Apparently the back door to their apartment was unlocked during the day. When an officer arrived in the area at around 10 p.m., he saw Salamanca-Flores and another male sitting on the front steps of 202 Pearl St. with laptops, and when the victim came outside, she told the officer Salamanca-Flores had her computer, according to the report. Salamanca-Flores told the officer someone else had given him the laptops, the report says. "He did me wrong," Salamanca-Flores said about that person, whom he described as a "klepto," according to the report. The officer allegedly responded by saying, "Knowing that, you still took the laptops." Salamanca-Flores allegedly said, "Yes."
