After telling Dove what had been taken, the suspect returned the snake-head bracelets the next day. He claimed he had bought them from someone in the neighborhood, investigators said.
When deputies looked into the case further, they realized Dove had called 911 on Jan. 8 to report that the victim's home was unsecured.
A deputy responded to the house in the 4900 block of SE 148th Place, met with Dove, secured the home and left, the sheriff's office said.
A neighbor told the victim that he had surveillance video from the time of the burglary that showed a man entering and leaving the home several times, investigators said.
The victim identified the man in the video as Dove, deputies said.
When investigators interviewed Dove, he denied taking anything from the home.
He was arrested and charged with burglary and grand theft.
He was being held at the Marion County Jail in lieu of a $7,000 bond.
