Around 2:20 a.m., the outdoor security cameras showed an unauthorized trespasser at a client’s shopping center. The suspect approached a glass window and pulled out a chain.  He looked around and observed his surroundings. The suspect struck the chain against the glass display window repeatedly.  A commercial property security operator activated the on-site speaker. The suspect stayed on the property and continued to hit the glass display window. A shopping center security operator called the local police.

The window eventually broke and the glass shattered to the ground. The suspect checked his surroundings a second time. He stepped on top of a metal window trim and hoisted himself inside. The suspect left his bag outside of the store.

The outdoor security cameras showed the arrival of the responding police officers at 2:34 a.m. They were accompanied by a K9 unit and a keyholder for the store. The police dog was released  into the store. Responding police officers located the suspect. They escorted the suspect out of the store and placed him under arrest.
