Officers arrested a man after he allegedly broke into a Lansing dentist office, a police spokesman said.

The incident was reported around 7:45 a.m. Tuesday at the dentist office at 842 N. Main St.

Police were contacted by an employee who had arrived at the business.

When officers entered, they encountered a dog that did not belong to anyone associated with the business. Officers then found the suspect, a 36-year-old man, inside the building. The dog apparently belongs to the suspect, according to Lansing Police Chief Steve Wayman.

It appears the suspect may have broken a window to get inside the building.

“He made a mess but didn't do a lot of damage,” Wayman said.

Wayman said it appeared the suspect had stacked items from the dentist office to be removed from the building.

The man was arrested for burglary, criminal damage to property and theft.

Wayman said authorities may pursue charges against the man in connection to another burglary that was reported over the weekend at the Leavenworth Golf Club, which is located in Lansing at 455 W. Eisenhower Road.
