An officer says Charles Tenorio got in through a broken glass window and that security footage shows him taking about $2,000 worth of merchandise and destroying display cases. The criminal complaint states police on scene told Tenorio he was under arrest as he was exiting the store, then he fled on foot.

It’s unclear how officers caught up with him. He’s charged with burglary, evading an officer, and criminal damage to property.
