REDDING, Calif. - An alarm went off in the warehouse of the Redding Salvation Army in the 4400 block of Westside Rd. on Sunday morning, bringing police officers out to hamper a burglary-in-progress.
At approximately 9 a.m. officers noticed a partially opened roll-up door at the rear of the warehouse, so they quickly set up a perimeter so they could apprehend the suspect, who still appeared to be inside.
One officer noticed something emerge from under the partially opened door. It was a bag of clothing items.
Officers observed 36-year-old Shannon Sewell of Redding running inside the charity warehouse toward an exit door on the north side of the building. When Sewell went out the door he was confronted by many Redding police officers, including K9 Nord.
Sewell was then taken into custody without incident and was taken to the Shasta County Jail.
Sewell was already on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS). He was charged with commercial burglary, possession of narcotics paraphernalia and violating his probation.
