A 34-year-old man wanted in connection with a bikini barista burglary that took place Monday night in Lacey was arrested Tuesday, according to Lacey police.
About 10 p.m. Monday, a man allegedly broke into Pink Sugar Espresso at 8904 Martin Way E. and stole a small safe and money from a cash register, Newcomb said.
The suspect, who was booked on suspicion of second-degree burglary, was taken into custody in Centralia Tuesday afternoon, Sgt. Jaime Newcomb said. Newcomb said police received multiple tips about the suspect after news media posted stories early Tuesday saying police were searching for the man.
He said the man was living in Lewis County, but also has ties to Thurston and Cowlitz counties.
