Police in Troutdale, Oregon, arrested a man who they say tried to break into the department to retrieve a skateboard.
Sgt. Steve Bevens says the door handle to the main entrance at the police station was gone late Saturday. The building’s surveillance system showed the attempted break-in, with the suspect leaving the scene with the handle still in his hand.
Officers identified the suspect as 20-year-old Nathaniel Mirelez of Wood Village. He was arrested for shoplifting earlier Saturday.
Bevens says Mirelez told investigators he wanted to get inside to get his skateboard back. It had been taken as safekeeping property during the shoplifting arrest.
