IDAHO FALLS — An Idaho Falls man has been arrested for allegedly vandalizing a local soda shop.

Police reports show Gilberto Ahuatzi, 22, was arrested Friday after police matched him to security camera footage taken from the shop at 698 1st Street in Idaho Falls.

The footage shows a man shattering multiple windows on March 15 at around 5:30 a.m. The shattered glass caused damage to the machinery inside the building, according to a police news release.
