ANDERSON, Calif. (AP) — Despite what police called an "elaborate escape scheme," a Northern California man was arrested as he left a building with two safes.
The Redding Record-Searchlight reports Monday that police in Anderson went to a business after a burglar alarm was tripped.
Officers and Shasta County sheriff's deputies set up a perimeter outside.
Anderson police Sgt. Casey Day says the burglar had a long and elaborate escape plan, but police just "waited patiently" and arrested him when he emerged.
Day says the 29-year-old man was armed with a large knife but was taken into custody without a struggle.
Day says the man was arrested on suspicion of grand theft auto, burglary, possession of a controlled substance, vandalism, possession of burglary tools, misappropriation of property and possession of stolen property.
