Belton was seen carrying equipment out of the office when he was spotted by deputies. Belton saw the deputies and then took off running.
“I believe he threw (the equipment) down before we could actually detain him,” said Sgt. Rich Nagler of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
The deputies began to chase the suspect while establishing a perimeter for their search, which ended at the driveway of a home on the 20200 block of Delight Street, near Elm Avenue.
After surrounding the home he was on top of, the suspect eventually complied with an order to come down.
Belton was booked at 6 p.m. Wednesday on burglary charges.
