BRADENTON, Fla. - A man is under arrest for trespassing after being found in a shed at a Home Depot in Bradenton.

Deputies with the Manatee County Sheriff's Office were called in after workers reported seeing the man entering the storage shed at the Home Depot on Cortez Road.

Deputies say numerous announcements were made to get Christopher Hobbs out of the shed. He reportedly concealed himself in the back corner of the shed and kept the door locked. Two K9 deputies were brought in to get through the door and get to Hobbs. 

He was treated by Emergency Medical Services and transported to Manatee Memorial Hospital to treat his injuries from the dog bite.
