The first driver was cited and his car was towed away. The motorcyclist was booked at Ingleside Station.

Bayview

The first arriving officer saw the thief trying to force open the warehouse door with a crowbar and hammer.

But the busy burglar did not notice the officer watching him until he took a break from attempting to break in. He was then arrested without incident.
