The shopping center has been a training academy for young criminals. Add stupid young criminals – this one thought the bank would have money left out of the vault for the taking.
A 19-year-old Pacific Grove man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and vandalism early Sunday after he reportedly broke a window at the Chase Bank at 170 Country Club Center, then climbed in to look for money.
The broken window caused an alarm to sound just before 6 a.m., police said, and they arrived to find Curtis Vanderslice, near the bank.
Vanderslice admitted breaking the window and going inside, police said. He was booked into county jail.
