Police nab man suspected of breaking into cars

A 34-year-old man was arrested after a witness phoned police to report vehicles parked in the 600 block of Queens Avenue being broken into late Sunday evening.
Officers set up surveillance and spotted a man leaving the driver's side of a parked car and opening the trunk apparently checking for items. When they moved in, the suspect started to walk away before being arrested without incident.
The officers discovered the car's steering column had been removed, and they also found another vehicle with the passenger side window pulled out to allow entry.
The 34-year-old accused man of no fixed addressed was known to police who are recommending charges of attempted theft of auto, mischief to auto and breaching probation.
