Deputies Arrest Subject for Burglary of Local Business
2017-07-10

In the early morning hours of July 8, 2017, deputies responded to an alarm call at Shelby Country Store in Shelby.  Deputies arrived to find a person inside the store.  As the individual was attempting to flee the store, through a hole in the wall, he was taken into custody by deputies.  Aaron Carden, of Shelby, was arrested at the scene and has been charged with Burglary 3rd Degree and Possession of Burglars Tools.  Carden is currently being held in the Shelby County Jail on bonds totaling $10,000.  Sheriff Samaniego would like to publicly commend the two deputies who caught this business burglar in the act.  Thanks to their attention and dedicated service this business did not lose any of its property and the offender was quickly arrested and taken to jail.

Businesses which close for the night can do several things to make themselves a harder target. Installing bright lighting on the exterior reduces the concealment thieves have when entering and lets patrolling deputies clearly see doors and windows are still secure. Leaving interior lights on or installing motion sensing lighting reduces thieves concealment once inside. Locking the items thieves target, such as cigarettes, in a cabinet overnight will delay the quick grab and escape.
