The San Luis Obispo Police Department arrested a man on Sunday after he reportedly broke into a house and then crashed his car into the Trader Joe’s parking lot.
SLOPD said in a Facebook post that the driver had broken into a nearby house and fled the scene when confronted by the residents of the house.
As he was driving away, police say he likely miscalculated a turn and launched over the landscaping wall, landing in the Trader Joe's and Food 4 Less parking lot on S. Higuera Street.
The driver was arrested and charged with misdemeanor hit and run, felony vandalism, being under the influence of a controlled substance, attempted car jacking and possession of a dirk/dagger.
The suspect has not yet been identified.
