Police say the burglar first broke in to the neighboring "Birria De Chiva" Mexican restaurant with some tools, removed a sink in a bathroom and then broke through the wall to the dispensary.
Police arrested 43-year-old Craig M. Stevens, who was seen walking nearby. He faces charges of burglary, criminal mischief and other related offenses.
