At approximately 2:45am, officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of Oakland Ave on a suspicious person in a resident’s backyard. The reporting party stated the individual appeared to be looking in her car windows and preparing to commit a theft offense to her vehicle.

When officers arrived in the area, an individual that matched the description was observed. The suspect immediately began to flee from the officer on foot.

The suspect was taken into custody without further incident. He was found to be in possession of property that is believed to have been obtained through the commission of a theft offense.
