Irvine, CA – The Irvine Police Department (IPD) has arrested a man for commercial burglary, vandalism and resisting arrest. Ryan James Adrig, 23, of Laguna Beach was arrested by Irvine Police officers after a short foot pursuit.
On August 4, 2016, at approximately 1:00 AM, the owner of an Irvine business received a phone call from his alarm company notifying him of a burglary alarm activation at his business. The owner was able to instantly pull up his live video surveillance on his home computer to view the interior of his business. A male subject, now identified as Adrig, was seen walking around inside the business. The owner immediately contacted IPD and provided the physical description of Adrig to IPD dispatchers.
As Irvine officers were responding to the business, they located Adrig walking along Sand Canyon Avenue. Upon approaching Adrig, he quickly ran away from the officers jumping over several fences and walls. A short foot pursuit ensued before Adrig was located and detained without further incident in the yard of the Irvine Animal Shelter.
Officers returned to the business and found a window smash to the front and no other suspects were inside.
Investigation is ongoing.
