MESA, AZ - Police arrested a 21-year-old man on Sunday after he allegedly broke into a Blockbuster Video store in Mesa to steal candy.
According to Mesa police Sgt. Ed Wessing, the suspect, Steven Doty, broke the glass door of the Blockbuster Video store just before 4 a.m. near Ellsworth and Baseline roads with a rock and was overheard by a nearby officer patrolling the area.
