A man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of burglary after he allegedly broke into a Sandy, Utah Jewelery store through the ceiling of a neighboring store, police said.

Gene Richins, 31, was trying to break through the store's bulletproof glass with a fire extinguisher to exit the building when police arrived, according to Sgt. Jon Arnold.

Police were notified of the potential break-in when the alarms went off at 6:35 a.m. at the Sierra-West Jewelers.
