After previous burglaries left Miguel Ceja, an owner of the Boost Mobile store, out thousands of dollars of inventory, he took things into his own hands. Ceja created a “secure area” with reinforced steel doors. Once you find yourself in that hallway, “you’re done”, says Ceja. There is no way out and the resulting video after this break in is epic! Watch below…
Not yet open to the public, the location was not stocked with merchandise at the time. The intruder apparently made such a realization before running through a door that he may have thought was an exit. Instead of ending up outside of the building, however, the man found himself inside an inescapable hallway.
When “that door shuts, you’re done,” Ceja said. “You’re not getting out of there.”

He said the secure area, complete with reinforced steel doors, was constructed after he and his business partners lost thousands of dollars worth of inventory in previous burglaries at their other stores.
The footage shows the suspected thief desperately trying to escape for about 45 minutes, kicking the doors and even trying to break through one of them by using a hammer and other tools.
Yet his efforts proved fruitless, and he was freed only when police arrived at the scene and took him into custody.
