Officers said the man, Cewanee Steele, 39, broke the front glass of the One Stop convenience store in the 12800 block of East 41st Street near 129th East Avenue setting off an alarm at 2:24 a.m. 

Police Sgt. Jeremy Noland said a guard with Jarvis Security, who was hired to watch the store arrived ahead of police officers, saw Steele leaving the store and placed him into custody.
