Surveillance footage shows a man wearing gloves and a dark coloured hoodie using a tool to pry the door open. The man entered the building, then ran from the scene and left the area in a vehicle, headed down Commercial St. Police suspect the very loud audible alarm in the building caused him to reconsider his intentions.
