Chattanooga Police have charged Nicholas C. Parks, 25, in connection with a business burglary on Broad Street late Wednesday night.
 
At approximately 11:30 p.m., the Chattanooga Police Department responded to a business burglary at La Carniceria, 1500 Broad St.
 
Upon arrival neighborhood patrol officers located the business door open and searched the building to ensure that the suspect was no longer on scene.
 
The responding officers determined that the suspect had entered the building by creating a hole in the roof, causing extensive damage.
 
Video footage from inside the business provided officers and investigators with an accurate description of the suspect.
 
Using this information, Chattanooga Police officers patrolled the area and were able to stop a suspicious vehicle nearby. The driver of the vehicle was identified as the suspect seen in the security camera footage.
 
Police said, "Evidence was collected from the vehicle which placed the suspect at the scene.  Through hard work and dedication these neighborhood patrol officers were able to respond to the scene, obtain an accurate description of the suspect, identify him and execute an arrest within an hour of the crime being committed."
 
Parks is charged with theft of property, burglary and vandalism.
