Sarasota, Florida -- Stephen A. Brewster lists his home address as a residence on Holiday Drive in Sarasota. But those who deal with him on a regular basis might suggest he'd be better off listing the Sarasota County Jail instead.

His rap sheet seems like it's a mile long and his mug shots number more than most people have pictures on their Facebook page.

On Tuesday morning, Brewster was arrested once again... this time for car burglary.  It marks arrest number 40 in Sarasota County.

Says Sarasota Sheriff Tom Knight: "He's been though the judicial system (so much), he probably knows it better than I do."

Brewster's rap sheet includes arrests for fraud, forgery, stealing credit cards, criminal mischief, grand theft, petty theft, robbery, loitering... and the list goes on and on.

The woman whose car Brewster allegedly broke into was outraged when she learned of his arrest record.

Brewster is back behind bars, but for how long is unclear. His bond is set at just $5,000. It's a frustrating situation according to the Sheriff, and one that he says needs to be changed.

"If anybody out there has the answers, we would like to have it. Because we're frustrated too, with arresting the same people over and over and over again."

A spokesperson for the State Attorney's Office points out that in July of 2009, Brewster was sentenced to 33 months in prison, followed by 27 months of community supervision.

The spokesperson says that was more than what the state sentencing guidelines called for, and also notes most of his offenses were non-violent property crimes and his cases were prosecuted based on the evidence available.

The State Attorney's Office will seek prison time if Tuesday's arrest results in a conviction, or if it is a violation of his probation.
