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.

so very sad, able bodied (at least what we see) turning to crime! what a waste, what a shame? who knows?

I totally agree. The problem is, however, he might not be a good kid. Drugs are probably the reason for that as well.

when they arent catching robbers the police should be given shovels and hot asphalt to fill in the potholes in the road. Good god.

Probably couldn’t find anything productive to do with his life so he decided to be a drug addict. When asked, he likely didn’t know the other guy’s name; he was just out searching for his lost cat or some other stupid excuse. These small incidents end up costing us tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. We could put a good kid through college for the same cost.
