COLUMBUS (Kellie Hanna) -- Columbus police had to tackle a suspect to arrest him out of an auto body shop break-in just after 3 a.m.
It happened when a neighbor called to report a man appeared to be breaking into cars at Genessee Auto Body Shop at Cleveland Ave. and Genessee Ave. in East Linden.
When officers and a K9 arrived, they found the suspect had broken in through the fence and was hiding in one of the cars.
The suspect eventually came out of the car on his own. He was surrounded by six officers but still tried to run.
Officers tackled and arrested the suspect. No names are being released, and he has not yet been officially charged.
The suspect did have a portable DVD player on him. No word on whether or not that was stolen in a separate incident.
