Shortly before 3 a.m. on Tuesday officers responded to a business on the 8000 block of W. Overland Rd for a reported vandalism in progress. Evidence indicates the suspect, Harrison Williams, broke in and gained entry into the business which was not open but had employees working inside. Upon further investigation, officers learned that the suspect broke a secured glass case and was seen holding a rifle he had taken from inside of it. As officers made their way to the area where the suspect was reported to be, they also worked to evacuate the building. When officers approached Williams, it appeared that he no longer had the firearm. Despite multiple verbal commands to put his hands in the air, Williams would not comply with officers. Williams was detained and placed under arrest. Once in custody, it was confirmed that Williams had an outstanding failure to appear warrant. Williams was booked into the Ada County Jail on the listed charges.
