KILL DEVIL HILLS -- A man who allegedly robbed a Kill Devil Hills Mexican restaurant was arrested Thursday after police say they found the suspect's drivers license at the scene. 

Police say 25-year-old Royce Thad Young Jr. broke into the business through a ventilation shaft on the roof. 

He dropped into the kitchen from the ceiling and allegedly stole a cash register drawer, police said. 

The crime was captured on surveillance video inside the restaurant.  Police say they were able to identify the suspect in the video from a drivers license found next to the ventilation shaft. 

While executing a search warrant, Young fled the scene but was apprehended after a short chase. 

During a search of the residence, police found a stolen cash register drawer, cocaine, Oxycodone and drug paraphernalia.

Young has been charged with breaking and entering, possession of stolen property and injury to real property.  Drug-related charges were filed with the Dare County Sheriff's Office. 

Young is being held on a $200,000 bond. 

Two other people were also charged with drug-related offenses after police executed the search warrant, 28-year-old Morgan Folaros and 21-year-old Anthony Faulkiner.
