LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas police are investigating a situation at a local Discount Tire store that involves a suspected burglar caught by employees.

Officers were called to the business located at 4431 N. Rancho Drive, near Craig Road, at about 2:15 p.m. with reports of a thief who was locked in a room by workers.

Staff trapped the man in a room as they suspected he was involved in other burglaries at different Discount Tire stores within the valley.

Police were still working the situation, and as of early Tuesday evening, they were attempting to make contact with the would-be burglar.
