`Front door at Macy's smashed in by would-be burglar (Walla Walla police)

A would-be thief probably didn't consider using a huge rock to smash in the entire front door window of a store might get people's attention.

Police now say the suspect who was arrested Friday night after breaking into Macy's In Walla Walla on Main Street used a large rock to take out the entire glass front door, before racing in and stealing several hundred dollars worth of merchandise.

However, witnesses and security cameras captured the 10pm break-in, and the suspect, 38-year-old Jason R. Williams, was quickly located and arrested. He's facing numerous charges.

The sight of a man running down the street arms full of merchandise was a bit of a giveaway, and made it easier for him to be traced.
