Pulling an all-nighter at the office can have its benefits. A man apparently tried to break in to the business “Toms” on Lomo Drive early Thursday morning.
The owner was sleeping there, though. When he went to check out the noise, he found the suspect halfway through a broken window. After the owner yelled and threw some boxes at him, the suspect ran off.
A Cole County Sheriff’s Deputy arrested the suspect soon after that, and he admitted to the burglary attempt. He’s in jail. We won’t get his name from authorities until he’s formally charged.
