STATEMENT OF PROBABLE CAUSE The Complainant states that the following facts establish probable cause: Your complainant is an investigator with the Airport Police and bases this complaint on a review of reports and upon his own investigation. On January 3, 2012, H.B. flew into the Twin Cities airport, but his gate checked bag did not arrive with him. The next day United Airlines contacted H.B. and told him that his missing bag had been located. H.B. went to the airport to retrieve his bag, but when he arrived the bag was not there. H.B. said that he had an American Express credit card, an Apple iPad 2, Dell laptop computer, and Bose noise cancelling headphones in the bag. Detective Seelig was able to view the airport's Closed Circuit Television system. Detective Seelig saw a young man with a University of Minnesota duffle bag walk around the carousel baggage claim area for a while. The man takes a roller bag from carousel 11 and then takes another bag from carousel 12. The man then left the baggage level and was seen entering a blue Dodge Avenger with Minnesota license plate 912ATN. On January 11, 2012 at approximately 12:59 pm, H.B.'s credit card was used to purchase $35.07 in gas at a Holiday gas station in Minneapolis. At 2:20 pm that same day, H.B.'s credit card was used to purchase $228.34 of items at a GNC store in Minneapolis. The person using the card created a Gold Card during the transaction in the name of Chris James. The address "Chris James" provided was 769 San Wan, Riverside, CA 92879. At 3:50 pm that same day, H.B.'s credit card was used to purchase another $104.06 in items at the GNC store located at the Rosedale Mall located in Roseville, Ramsey County. That same day, H.B.'s credit card was used at the Macy's located in the Rosedale Mall to purchase items for $462.00. A later transaction at 5:29 pm on H.B.'s credit card in the amount of $169.00 was declined at the same Macy's. Investigators were able to recover surveillance video of the Macy's purchase and saw a tall, muscular young black male wearing University of Minnesota clothing make the purchase. On January 14, 2012, H.B. returned home and discovered that his bag had been returned with an apology note attached. H.B. indicated that most of his expensive items had been returned, but he was concerned about his car key not having been returned. H.B. was able to determine that an iPhone and an Apple computer had been visiting his web site nearly every hour and he was afraid whoever had the key was planning on locating and stealing his car. H.B. had the locks to his home changed. On January 23, 2012, Detective Christensen received a phone call from a woman claiming to be the mother of the young man responsible for the missing bag. She said he was trying to mail H.B. $900.00 in order to pay him back for the missing items. The woman said that her son was Shaun Edwards, his date of birth was May 5, 1991, and he lived in Arizona. The woman said that her son felt really bad about the situation. Also on the phone was S.W., the daughter of the Dodge Avenger's registered owner. S.W. said she picked Shaun Edwards up from the airport on January 4, 2012. While en route to a friend's house, Edwards realized he had the wrong bag. Detective Christensen received another phone call from the woman, but this time GESHUN EDWARD HARRIS (DOB: 5-5-1991) was also on the phone. Harris said he grabbed the wrong bag from the carousel and did not return it because he did not want to be arrested for stealing the bag. Harris said he touched some of the items inside the bag and because of that he threw those items away. Harris claimed that he only went through the bag in order to try to reunite it with its owner. Harris admitted visiting the blog of the bag's owner.

Detective Christensen asked Harris if he used the victim's credit card. Harris said that he used the credit card at the gas station, two GNC stores, and the Macy's. Harris provided the address of 779 San Juan Street, Corona, CA 92879. Detective Christensen located photos of GeShun Harris from the Minnesota Gopher football roster, and he verified that the images matched the images of the thief from the airport and Macy's store.
