December 30, 2015
Grover Beach police arrested an alleged burglar Tuesday night, but investigators say a second suspect got away.
At about 10:39 p.m., officers responded to a report of suspicious activity at a business in the 200 block of Rockaway Avenue. When police arrived, they conducted a security check of the business and found a commercial burglary was in progress, according to a Grover Beach Police Department news release.
Arroyo Grande police, the Pismo Beach police K9 unit and state parks personnel helped Grover Beach officers establish a perimeter around the business. Officers saw a suspect exiting the business and jumping into a neighboring yard.
Officers entered the yard and arrested the man. Police identified him as 23-year-old Grover Beach resident Patrick Noah Ivey.
The arrest occurred at 239 S. 3rd Street, according to the news release. Auto repair shop The Buggy Haus is located at that address.
Police booked Ivey in San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of commercial burglary, possession of stolen property and possession of brass knuckles. Ivey remains in jail with his bail set at $20,000, according to the county sheriff’s office website.
A second suspect who was possibly involved in the burglary fled the scene before officers arrived, according to the press release.
An investigation into the case is ongoing. Investigators request that anyone with further information call the police department at 473-4511.
