ALICE (Kiii News) -

The Alice Police Department says they have caught the man who burglarized a carpet cleaning business on Monday night.

Now 28-year old Ismael Acuna faces burglary and auto theft charges.

Acuna is accused of breaking into South Texas Carpet Cleaning through a window, stealing a pressure washer, some cash and the keys to a van that he used as a getaway vehicle. Police say he wound up causing quite a bit of damage.

"I'm very frustrated. We worked so hard, and today we had six to seven jobs to go do," said Oscar Lopez, owner of South Texas Carpet Cleaning. "The van's broken down. We have to order the light. Something's wrong with the wheel alignment. So yeah, I'm very frustrated about it."

Police said that Acuna also burglarized a truck at another location Tuesday morning and stole some tools, which officers were able to recover.
