Man Found Living On Top Of Refrigerators at Pavilions
The Simi Valley Police were called last night around 10 p.m. to respond to a potential burglary at the Pavilions supermarket on Tapo Canyon Road, but were surprised to find that the accused may have been living there all along.Tristan Odegard-Brown, a 21-year-old transient in the area, was arrested immediately. According to CBS Los Angeles:"After an investigation, police found a large hole in the roof of the pharmacy, where it appeared Odegard-Brown would enter and live on top of refrigeration units inside the store, according to authorities."
"I have reviewed the case, and have been informed it is still under police investigation," Jenna Watkinson, a representative Pavilions told LAist. "It is our policy not to comment on pending investigations, but we are fully cooperating with local law enforcement."
Odegard-Brown was arrested on suspicion of a burglary, possession of drug paraphernalia and being under the influence of a controlled substance, officials said.
