Jessica dispatched Meridian PD and alerted the site contact. She continued hearing movement onside, including slight metal bangs. JessicaCulverOfficers arrived with K-9 and found a man inside. The man was having trouble complying with the officers’ requests due to extreme intoxication. It seems like the man was not there to steal anything, but the business’ phone was found in the microwave. Officers determined that the door was unlocked, which is how the suspect gained entry.
