NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN)- A man was arrested after causing more than $10,000 worth of damage to the Capital Bank branch in Green Hills late Wednesday night.

According to an arrest affidavit, 35-year-old Bobby Kelley, broke into the Glen Echo Road branch through the bank’s front door.

He also reportedly broke a bank teller window.

Police found an upstairs bathroom sink in the two-story branch clogged with toilet paper, the faucet left on.

The water flooded the bathroom area, causing water damage on both the second and first floors.

According to the affidavit, the suspect also grabbed a fire extinguisher and doused several rooms with it, including spraying a copy machine.

Metro police were first notified of criminal activity in the Green Hills area after an employee at the FedEx store on Hillsboro Pike called police saying a man, later determined to be Kelley, had entered the store and stolen a cart.

Later, Kelley allegedly tried to kick-in the door of the nearby Pier 1 Imports on and vandalized the Smoothie King, in the same shopping area.

Kelley is charged with 3 counts of vandalism, 1 count of burglary, and 2 counts of attempted burglary. He is due in court on Monday, Nov. 7
