Police arrived at the scene as the suspects were attempting to enter the business, so it’s not clear if they took anything, officers said.

One of the suspects was tackled and immediately taken into custody, and the other fled. Police chased the person, who at one point was on a rooftop, but they did not catch the suspect, officers said.

The second suspect’s identity has not been released.
