The Rocklin Police Department arrested a man Friday night who’s accused of breaking into an auto recycling business and then hiding in a tree to try to evade law enforcement.
Officers surrounded the business while the man was inside, and a drone captured him walking out of the business, the news release said. The suspect, a 58-year-old Grass Valley man, is accused of stealing some items that authorities eventually recovered, said Capt. Scott Horrillo, a spokesman for the Rocklin Police Department.
The man was arrested and booked into the South Placer Jail on suspicion of burglary and resisting arrest. He was held in lieu of $170,000 bail, booking records showed.
