INDIANAPOLIS - Police confirmed an unsuccessful burglary attempt at a local gun business ended with a man being put in handcuffs early Wednesday morning.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said at roughly 2 a.m., officers were sent to Don's Gun in the 3800 block of Lafayette Road to respond to a business alarm going off.
Officers said they immediately secured the business and the surrounding area, and then saw a man appearing out of a duct vent on the roof of the business.
Officers said they asked Indianapolis fire crews to assist in getting a ladder up so officers could get to the roof. As they were getting ready to ascend, police said they saw Brennon Cook, 19, of Indianapolis, jumping off the roof, and running away.
Officers said they ran after Cook to the 400 block of West 38th Street, and with the assistance of a K-9, he was caught and arrested.
IMPD said the officers' quick response and instinctive actions helped keep illegally obtained guns from hitting the streets of Indianapolis.
Cook was arrested on a preliminary charge of burglary, a Class C felony, and taken to jail.
