A suspected thief's plans were foiled after business owners heard him sneaking around a crawl space.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump said the initial break-in happened at a cleaners within a business complex near 35th Avenue and Thunderbird Road.

Other business owners contacted police after hearing noises coming from the ceiling. The suspect was caught, arrested and booked into jail on two counts of burglary. His identity was not released.

Police said they do not know what the suspect was looking for as the suspect did not get away with any items.
