A loud popping sound was heard, followed by that of breaking glass, police said.

Police said a person allegedly moved to the parking lot and while carrying a hammer and work gloves was taken into custody by officers.
Mr. Perrera was arrested and later released on $3,250 unsecured bond, police said.

Charges included wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony, possession of burglary tools, third-degree attempted burglary, tampering with physical evidence, resisting arrest and criminal mischief under $1,000.
