VACAVILLE — Police responded to an alarm call early Thursday for the Mexico Meat Market on the 1100 block of East Monte Vista Avenue and found the front store window broken.
A suspect was allegedly seen leaving the store as the officers arrived, according to a press release issued by the Police Department. After a brief foot pursuit, Officer Darren Young and K-9 Syar took Vacaville resident Todd Sampson, 18, into custody in connection with the incident, according to the police report.
It was initially thought, after interviewing Sampson, that additional people could be in the store and armed. The perimeter of the store was secured, with a portion of East Monte Vista Avenue shut down, and the SWAT team called to the scene. The Yolo Bomb Squad was also called and provided equipment to search the building.
No other suspects were found.
Sampson was treated for minor wounds from K-9 Syar and taken to jail for alleged commercial burglary.
