11-year-old found hiding in store

An 11-year-old boy who wanted to steal a pair of Reebok sneakers was charged with commercial burglary after he was found hiding inside a Kmart late Thursday, police said.

The boy, a sixth-grader at Hamilton Disston School, hid his bicycle behind Kmart at 3951 34th St. S, said Officer Lilla Davis. The boy then stayed inside the store after it closed, Davis said. He was inside for nearly two hours before the cleaning crew found him near the lawn mowers about 11:30 p.m., Davis said.
