OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man in connection to a break-in at the Olympia Veterinary Hospital that resulted in an estimated $100,000 in damage.

The Olympian reports (https://goo.gl/MeOOge ) 25-year-old Ariel Calabria was arrested Wednesday. He faces charges of burglary and malicious mischief.

Officers had responded to the veterinary hospital to a report of a burglary in progress. Police say officers asked Calabria to come out of the building, but he refused.

Officers eventually went inside and used a stun gun to remove the man, who had been standing on top of a shelf.

Owner of the hospital, Michael Kiefer, says hundreds of dollars worth of opened medication had to be thrown away and a $60,000 X-ray machine may need to be replaced.



No animals were injured during the incident.
