Suspect arrested inside storage building

Kern County Sheriffs deputies arrested a man on commercial burglary charges after they apparently caught him in the act of a daylight burglary attempt Wednesday.

The suspect, identified on the scene as Reginald Stark, was arrested in a storage building at 102 Harrison Street just after 2 p.m.

Deputies responded to a burglar alarm sounding in the building and found an open door.

Back-up officers were requested, and six deputies and Taft Police officers arrived on scene.
Stark was detained and held briefly at gunpoint.

Officers then searched the rest of the building but found no other suspects.
The suspect had apparently been stacking items to steal at the rear of the building.
