Montgomery County Police say they believe a man arrested Monday for burglary at a Sears store in White Oak may have hid in the store overnight.

Daniel Grant, 29, who lives in the 4200 block of Dunwood Terrace Burtonsville, Md. was arrested around 12:30 p.m. on Monday as he exited the Sears store located in the White Oak Shopping Center off of New Hampshire Avenue, according to police.  Police had initially responded to the store around 12:30 a.m. for the report of an alarm being activated.

Police said the early burglary investigation indicates that Grant was in the White Oak Sears store Sunday night, and hid from employees until the store closed. Police say Grant then pried open cash registers and removed cash.

Grant has been charged with second degree burglary and theft.  Police say he will also be charged for a burglary at the Sears at Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg, Md. on November 23rd,  and for a burglary at a Sears in Columbia, Md. last weekend.
