Deputies in Pacific County responded to a residential burglary alarm and arrested a suspect.
The Pacific County Sheriff’s Office tells KXRO that in the early morning hours yesterday at around 12:50 AM, there was a report of a residential burglary alarm that had been activated in the 18900 block of Sandridge road.
The Sheriff’s Office says when the deputies approached the scene they noticed movement inside the residence and that the door looked like it was forced open.
They say that as the deputies were getting ready to enter the residence, a male suspect exited and attempted to flee.
The deputies pursued and found the man attempting to hide in some tall shrubbery.
The 31 year old Ocean Park man was taken into custody without further incident and was booked at the Pacific County Jail on a charge of Burglary in the Second Degree.
