A man was arrested on Christmas Eve for allegedly breaking into a vape store.

Cape Coral police arrested Terrance Gene Schoep, 23, after a burglary call was made from the King of Vape, located at 1407 Del Prado Blvd. South.

The alarm at the location was set off, and surveillance footage of Schoep running through the shop was seen.

Police found Schoep lying on the ground in front of the business with glass from the door smashed around him.
