Teenager arrested for allegedly breaking into cars, stealing cologne and cash
Ann Arbor police arrested an 18-year-old man for allegedly breaking into three cars and stealing a menagerie of items during an early morning spree.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said the man preyed on unlocked cars early Tuesday in the 2100 block of Stone School Circle. Police responded to the area at 4:40 a.m., she said. A caller reported a car had been broken into, the interior lights in the vehicle were on and personal items were missing.
Officers in the area stopped the teenager after discovering he matched the suspect description they had been provided, Bush said. Investigators arrested the teenager and found stolen property on him.
He was surprised to see investigators arrive on the scene so quickly, she said.
Among the reported stolen items were cash, a briefcase, phone chargers, jewelry, video game systems, bank cards, playing cards and cologne, Bush said. Some of the property was recovered.
The teenager was still in lockup at the Ann Arbor Police Department Tuesday. AnnArbor.com is not releasing his name because he has not been formally charged with a crime to this point.
