The San Luis Obispo Police arrested a man for allegedly burglarizing a business last Thursday.
According to SLOPD, they received a report around 11:57 p.m. from The Sub, located at 295 Higuera. The report stated a man may have broken into the business.
After a fire, the business has been boarded up and surrounded by a perimeter fence to keep people away from danger.
SLO officers were told the male fled the area before their arrival.
After receiving another report stating the suspect had returned to The Sub and was seen carrying a pry bar, officers conducted a search of the location and found one of the boarded windows had been forced open. The board was intact on their first visit to the location.
Officers noticed items from inside the business were hidden out of sight near this window. It is possible the suspect was taking items out of the business and returning to retrieve them.
Officers began conducting surveillance of the location waiting for the suspect to return for the stolen property. The suspect returned Friday at 4 a.m. and headed for the stolen property within the fenced-in area.
Ronald Bolen, 27, of SLO was arrested and confessed to being inside the burnt building. Bolen was transported and booked at SLO County Jail for one count of commercial burglary. His bail was set at $20,000.
