Forklift ride lands man in Sacramento jail

Sacramento police have arrested a man after he allegedly broke into a business and drove around on a forklift.

Officers responded to a U-Haul business in the 1600 block of El Camino Avenue about 2:30 a.m. Monday for a report of a man riding a forklift on the property after breaking into the business.

Police took Jeffrey Paul Kocher, 40, into custody and booked him into Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of burglary and tampering, breaking or removing parts. Officers believe that Kocher entered the business through the roll-up doors and started the forklift up.

At one point the forklift broke a window on one of the U-haul trucks, police said.
