Would-Be Thief May Have "bedded down" in Macy's to Burglarize Mall
The Los Angeles Police Department arrested a man early Thursday morning who may have hid inside a mall department store in order to wait until the overnight hours to commit a robbery.
The suspect, thought to be 25-30 years old, was spotted at around 1:30 a.m. by a mall security employee in the Macy's at the Westfield Promenade in Woodland Hills, according to City News Service.
The LAPD sent out a team to search for the suspect, who may have "bedded down" inside the Macy's in order to ride out the time past closing, or possibly broken in.
It took about 90 minutes to locate and apprehend him, and he was booked on suspicion of burglary, according to the LAPD.
Authorities have not released information about the man's identity.
