Indy Zoo intruder found hiding in the trash

Police responding to a report of someone jumping over the fence at a building at the Indianapolis Zoo say they arrested a man they say was stealing metal fixtures.

Capitol police say they have charged 22-year-old Roman Brown of Indianapolis with burglary, attempted theft and criminal mischief.

Police said Brown was found hiding in a trash bin when they responded to the call at 3:35 a.m. Friday. Police say they found a white Ford pickup truck with 14 metal fixtures in the bed. They were later identified as zoo property.

Police say another person fled the scene.
