Beaumont police arrested a Bridge City man after he was found in a machine shop in Beaumont Sunday morning.

Officers responded to the burglar alarm at American Machine Works on Milan St. about 9:30 am.

Upon arrival, police found a vehicle backed up to the building and could hear noises inside the shop. When officers threatened to send in a canine unit, the man exited the building.

Metal and other items had been stacked near the door, in an apparent attempt to bring the items out.

The man, who was unnamed, was taken into custody and transported to the Jefferson County Jail. He was to be arraigned Sunday.
