Two men ran away after damaging the door of Calne tanning and beauty salon Tan-Tastic on Friday, May 9.
A witness saw the men running from the Oxford Road salon at 9.38pm.
The raiders had knocked an external door off its hinges and smashed a glass panel in the door.
The men, who did not take anything, were seen heading in the direction of the Sainsbury’s store.
Police went to the area, stopping and searching a small group gathered nearby.
They arrested a 16-year-old boy who was found to be in possession of a controlled substance, believed to be cannabis, and who also had a large amount of cash.
He was bailed and is due to report to police on July 17.
Inquiries into the damage caused at Tan-Tastic are still ongoing.
Police would like anyone with information to contact officers on 101.
