San Jose police arrest man after break-in at RASA Hydroponics store

SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- San Jose police arrested a man Thursday morning after a break-in at the RASA Hydroponics store following a barricade situation.

Officials said the suspect hid inside the store after police responded to the scene near Blossom Hill Road and Winfield Boulevard.

Police escorted the business owner inside where they got a look at extensive damage, such as broken glass.

The owner said he thinks the damage is $10,000. He said he found out something was wrong when he got a call from his security company.

Police say the suspect broke into a hydroponics store through a window at 4 a.m., and then kept banging around inside to try to find an escape route. However, that didn't work and in the end, he surrendered peacefully.

Police told ABC7 News the suspect has a lengthy criminal history.
