(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A  Rochester teen was arrested Friday after allegedly burglarizing an RCTC campus apartment.

A 25-year-old man lives in one of those apartments, and noticed some of his things looked out of place. He decided to set up a video camera on his own to see if something was going on.

The next day, he looked through the footage, and saw 19-year-old Vashawn Campbell breaking into his room, and stealing Mountain Dew, cheese and crackers, and $2.00 worth of quarters.

Campbell was arrested and faces charges of 3rd degree burglary.
