The 50" Vizio was still in the box which was located along the north wall next to the rear door. The computer modem was on the east side of the room next to the front door which leads onto Lincoln Avenue. I saw that the suspect(s) scattered baking flour throughout the entire room. Ahir told me that he and other employees walked throughout the room and left their footprints on the floor. I also saw that the suspect left their "powdered" footprints from the rear door, through the northeast portion of the north parking lot toward Howard Street and onto the south sidewalk heading east toward the southwest corner of Howard Street and Lincoln Avenue.
Ahir told me the computer modem contained former motel guest credit card and driver 's license information. Ahir also advised the computer modem has guest information from the time it was at the "Rainbow Inn Motel" located at 831 S. Beach Boulevard in Anaheim,
