The suspect, identified as Rudy Mindiola, was not more in the store as officers arrived, but was hiding in the area, Lieutenant Thomas Frayeh told Fox News. The officers ultimately found the suspect, as well as a mask and tools, police said.

Mindiola was taken into custody for commercial burglary and possession of burglary tools. He was later released on a $20,000 bond, police said.
