TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A man who said Governor Bush told him to take over a Florida State University office faces charges of trespassing and burglary after being found in possession of computer cables.

When FSU police confronted Victor Araujo, who had an active trespass warning him not to be on the FSU campus, they found in his green satchel bag computer cables and another computer cable in his pocket.

He was found in an office at the Pearle Tyner House, 1030 W. Tennessee St., on Monday at 3:10 p.m.

Near him was a partially disassembled computer, which officers believe he took apart.

A woman who works at the building said Araujo told her he was with ROTC and Governor Bush had sent him to take over the office. The woman said she was afraid of Araujo and left the building to call the police.

The probable cause affidavit said he was arrested for burglary of an unoccupied structure, petit theft first offense and criminal mischief less than $200.

He was transported to the Leon County Jail.
