According to the criminal complaint, Garza then stripped down to his underwear as he continued sweeping merchandise off the shelves, according to a criminal complaint.
At one point he broke the store's cooler glass door and started throwing sausage patties on the floor.
But he wasn't alone.
"A customer and also the clerk were inside the office at the time, and at first they were fearful because the first thing that came through was a rock through the window," police Capt. Michael Walker told KRQE. "Then they noticed he was just damaging property." said Garza also damaged the door to the Wells Fargo Bank and several car windows, Walker added.
Police said Garza caused about $5,000 worth of damage. They also believe he was high on drugs.
Garza is charged with criminal damage to property.
