— UPDATE @ 6 p.m. (May 19): A 52-year-old man is spending his birthday behind bars today after he was arrested Friday night in connection to a burglary at the downtown CVS.
Police were dispatched around 7:45 p.m. to an alarm call at the store, 32 N. Ludlow St., where they found a window smashed, according to a Dayton police report.
The alarm company reported that a man with a plaid shirt and black pants was walking down a cosmetics aisle covering his face.
An officer who responded to the area spotted a man matching this description — identified as Lewis P. Pullon — who was carrying multiple plastic CVS bags containing electronics, the report stated.

Pullon then began to have a fake seizure and complained about stomach pain. As a precaution, he was taken to Miami Valley Hospital. At the hospital, he threw gauze with his blood on it at an officer and admitted to a doctor that he faked his seizure, according to police.
However, staff pulled a shard of glass from a scratch on his back, which police said this matches the glass from CVS. The shard was taken as evidence along with Pullon’s clothing.
Pullon was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on suspicion of assault on a police officer, breaking and entering and obstructing official business, online jail records show. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Dayton Municipal Court.
