Suspect In SoCal Teen's Disappearance Arrested In Florida Theft

A suspect in the disappearance of a Rancho Santa Margarita college student has been arrested again in Florida.

The Orange County Register reports John Burgess was arrested at a Blockbuster store in Jacksonville on September 20th for investigation of stealing DVDS.

Burgess is free on $250,000 bail while awaiting an October 10th pretrial hearing in Los Angeles for allegedly failing to register as a sex offender while he lived in the city.

Burgess was arrested back in July in Jacksonville after police allegedly saw him trying to dispose of a bag of cocaine.

He was convicted of felony possession of drugs and sentenced to time served before being extradited to L.A.

Burgess has been formally named as a suspect in the disappearance of San Diego State University student Donna Jou (joh), but he has not been charged.

Jou was last seen June 23rd at a party at Burgess' West L.A. house.
