A man was arrested after stealing from the Madison Mallards team store Friday night.

According to a post from Madison police Chief Mike Koval’s blog, officers were dispatched to the Mallards team store on North Sherman Avenue at 11 p.m. after reports of a burglar being in the store.

Authorities set up a perimeter outside the store, and a K-9 team went into the stadium just as the 30-year-old male suspect was leaving. Officials said the man tried to escape but could not outrun the K-9.

The man was taken to jail on charges of burglary, criminal damage to property, resisting and possession of tools used for burglary.

An investigation is ongoing.
