Charges are pending against a man who allegedly broke into a St. Paul building and seized about 100 pounds of marijuana Wednesday.

Police say a man believed there were drugs in a building on the 2000 block of Stillwater Avenue so he broke into the building and found about 100 pounds of marijuana. When he tried to escape with the drugs, police say he either fell or jumped off the roof, breaking a leg.

Neighbors then called police, and the man was transported to Regions Hospital with a possible broken leg.

Police were seen putting the bricks of marijuana into plastic bags; they tell KSTP charges are pending.
