NORTH RIDGEVILLE — Police arrested a suspect who they believe used a tire iron to break into an A&C Foodmart and steal from the coin machine early Thursday.

A 52-year-old man was charged with breaking and entering and theft at his house in Elyria around 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning. Police refused to release the man’s name Thursday.

About 1:15 a.m. Thursday, police responded to an alarm at A&C Tire, 39475 Center Ridge Road.

Once there, they found that someone had forced entry through the auto repair shop and had broken a hole in the drywall of the shop’s bathroom. The suspect then climbed through the hole into A&C Foodmart on the other side and stole an unknown amount of money from a coin machine in the store, according to police.

Police arrested the 52-year-old man at his home in Elyria and took him to North Ridgeville City Jail, where he was being held Thursday.
