CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — A man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing from Apple after police found him hiding in the bushes near the company's corporate campus in Northern California.

Santa Clara Police Sgt. Kurtis Stenderup says Apple security officials on Saturday reported someone had opened a gate on the company's property in the 19000 block of Pruneridge Avenue in Cupertino. After conducting a search of the grounds, police say they found 56-year-old Glenn Cartwright hiding in bushes. At first, he refused to come out from his hiding place and was bitten by the police dog.

Stenderup says police found Cartwright with copper piping and wiring that he had removed from an Apple building.

He was treated for injuries at a local hospital before being booked for burglary and possession of burglary tools.
