Police arrested one man early Wednesday morning for attempting to rob a Weirton business after he set off the alarm trying to make it past a second entry way. 

Weirton police arrested Zachary Clevenger for attempted robbery after they say he broke into Gabriel Brothers on Three Springs Drive.

Police said about 3 a.m. Wednesday, officers caught Clevenger running across the parking lot. They said they saw Clevenger make it through the first door of the establishment and as he attempted to get through the second set of doors, he set off the alarm.

Clevenger was caught by police with bolt cutters and later admitted to breaking into the store, according to authorities.

He is currently being held in the Northern Regional Jail.
