SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — A burglary at an art gallery in Scottsdale was stopped Sunday morning by the Scottsdale Police Department.

Scottsdale police officers responded to a report of an in-progress burglary at the American Fine Art Gallery, near the intersection of Main Street and Scottsdale Road, just before 6 a.m. on Sunday. An employee at the gallery reported hearing someone inside and “self-extracted” from inside, police said.

The responding officers set a perimeter and established an “overwatch position.” The officers later located a man on the roof, police said.

With the assistance of a patrol drone, the suspect, later identified as Harpeet Singh, was contained to the roof, and then taken into custody without incident by a patrol officer and a K9 unit, police said.

There was property and evidence of the burglary staged on the roof, which was recovered, according to police. Police said Singh will be booked into Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office jail on burglary-related charges.
