Jensen is suspected of burglarizing the dentist's office at 1100 Farmers Lane around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning. Police found a door had been pried open and items were taken from the business, Banayat said.

Officers Jesse Cude and Thomas Piersol stopped a black Ford Thunderbird with a cracked windshield on Lomitas Avenue around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Banayat said.

They learned Jensen was driving on a suspended license and found computer equipment in the car they believed was taken from the burglary at the dentist's office, Banayat said.

Police detained and released two occupants of the car and searched Jensen's residence where they found a large brass sign which read "American Academy of Ophthalmology", Banayat said.

The 30-pound sign is 26 inches wide and 6 inches tall and is believed to be stolen property, Banayat said.

Police are asking anyone who knows were the sign originated to call detectives at (707) 543-3575.
