Officers also located evidence of Mr. Beatty trying to break into the door of the market, but did not elaborate in the release. Mr. Beatty was arrested for possession of burglary tools, possession of a controlled substance, attempted burglary and possession of narcotics.
He is scheduled to appear at Pomona Superior Court on October 31.
