Woodland police said they arrested a boy today who broke a store window in order to escape from the business he had allegedly entered to burglarize.
Officers responded to the Hollywood Market, 1321 College St., shortly after midnight where a citizen reported that somebody had smashed a store window. The window-breaker was hiding in the bushes, according to the citizen.
The vandal took off with the citizen following, and reporting his whereabouts to dispatchers until he lost sight of the teen on Buena Tierra Drive. Officers responded and quickly found the 15 year old.
Officers went to the store and learned that the teen likely entered the market from the rooftop and was forced to break the window to escape, according to a police press release. The teen was booked into juvenile hall on suspicion of burglary and vandalism.
