A California man is accused of tunneling his way into a convenience store.

The La Verne Police Department said in a Facebook post that 49-year-old Rudy Mindiola, of Pomona, was found hiding from police inside the store.

Police were called to Inland Dairy Store around 4 a.m., and discovered the tunnel, carved from the outside and into the store. The department’s Facebook posts show the hole and a surveillance image of a man climbing out of the hole into the store.

Mindiola faces charges of commercial burglary and possession of burglary tools.

Police said they found some stolen property, a mask and burglary tools stashed outside the store.

Mindiola has since been released on bond.
