Officers canvassed the area and learned that two of the three businesses had been forcibly entered. The two businesses that had been entered reported only cash had been taken. One of the businesses reported about $2,000 worth of property damage was done to the inside of the business, where the cash had been taken from.

Shortly afterwards, responding officers saw a subject in the area that matched the description of the suspect from the burglary. The subject was seen getting into a blue 2000 Cadillac and leaving the area. Officers located the vehicle driving on Del Rae Road and conducted a traffic stop.
