Using a drone, police successfully contained the suspect to the roof. He was apprehended without any complications by officers and a K9 unit. Evidence of the burglary, found on the roof, was also recovered.
Harpeet Singh, 32, the accused, faces charges and will be booked into Maricopa County Jail in Arizona.
