The store security camera showed the suspect flinging a rock through the front window and then kicking in the window of the closed business. The suspect then steps into the store, steals a laptop and flees.

Police said earlier that evening, officers were called to a nearby retail store where Short was causing a disturbance, police said. Short left the store before officers arrived, police said.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Short, who has previous convictions for auto theft, passing a fake check and drug possession.
