A man was arrested by Sheriff's deputies after allegedly being seen on a surveillance video stealing "drugs, medical equipment and office supplies" from a veterinary center, according to KTLA.

Deputies responded early Saturday morning to a burglary report at town Veterinary Medical Center at 245 Los Angeles Ave., where staffers told them what the burglar stole. The deputies viewed surveillance footage showing the burglar and his vehicle.

34-year-old suspect Michael Lopez of Moorpark was allegedly under the influence of a controlled substance when he was arrested on Saturday, following an investigation. The burglary suspect was booked at Ventura County Pre-trial Detention Facility with bail set at $10,000.
