Landscaping Crew Attempts To Hold Burglar At Bay

Witnesses to a break-in at a South Redding store made an effort to trap the burglar inside. Shortly before 7AM, somebody broke the glass out of one of the front doors at the Rite-Aid Store in Westwood Village. While the suspect was inside, a landscaping crew working nearby made their move. Dozens of bags of soil and fertilizer were stacked in front of the store. The witnesses re-stacked the bags in front of the broken door to block the burglar's escape. He got out through a rear emergency exit. It's not yet known what he stole.
