DETROIT (FOX 2)An owner of a Royal Oak business scared off a thief who spent several days ransacking her shop when she showed up for work Tuesday.

The woman said she noticed some of her work items outside of Delux Floral, a floral event business at 4915 Leafdale. She could see a man inside through a window so she called 911, police said.

The man, identified as 46-year-old Darien Robert-Alden Cook, fled the scene on foot, police said. Officers found him and arrested him. Police said Cook had items from the shop when they caught him.

Police said Cook had been inside the business for several days because it had been closed. He caused roughly $12,000 in damages.

Cook was charged with breaking and entering with intent, larceny in a building, and malicious destruction of property.

He was given a $15,000 cash/surety 10% bond with conditions to wear a tether upon release. 

He is due back in court April 19.
