LEBANON, Ore. -- A man is facing multiple charges, accused of breaking into Growler Cafe in Lebanon and taking the cash register till on Monday.

James Canda, 60, faces charges of second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and giving false information to a police officer.

Police said they learned an alarm had activated at the cafe at 43 West Grant Street just before 3:30 a.m. Officers found the front door open.

A Linn County Sheriff’s Office K9 assisted in searching the business. Police said no one was found inside, but there was evidence someone had been inside.

After reviewing video surveillance, they searched the surrounding area and found Canda hiding under a mattress.

They said he was wearing the same clothing as the man captured in the footage taking the cash register till, which they said they found under the mattress. Police said Canda gave them a false name.

He is wanted on warrants out of Billings, Montana, and was taken to the Linn County Jail.
