YORK COUNTY-- An alert passer-by helped foil a business burglary Thursday night.

Around 6:45 p.m., York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a possible commercial burglary in progress at the Bargain Box in the 200 block of Dare Road.  An alert passer-by noticed suspicious activity at the closed business and called 911.

Deputies arrived, surrounded the business and were able to find a man inside. 

One of the dputies heard what he thought was a suspect leaving the rear of the building and into some woods. 

A search ensued and due to the close proximity of the business to Dare elementary school that was hosting several events,  the school was placed on lock-down.  

The search turned up nothing and Dare Elementary was released from lock-down. 

Charges are pending on the man in custody. 

This incident and the identification of the second suspect are currently under investigation
