A 19-year-old Arnold man was arrested twice in the same day for allegedly tampering with a neighbor’s vehicle on Glatt Drive and allegedly stealing from other neighbors’ vehicles. A 29-year-old Arnold man also was arrested in connection with the alleged offenses, Arnold Police reported.
At about 6 a.m. May 20, Arnold Police got a report that the 19-year-old had been striking a neighbor’s vehicle and shattered a window. The neighbor reportedly caught the teen in the act, tackled him and held him until police arrived, Detective Lt. Jason Valentine said.
While police were on the scene, other homeowners who lives on Glatt Drive waved down the officers and said items had been stolen from their vehicles. Stolen items included a DVD player, a phone, a lunchbox and a Yeti cooler cup, altogether valued at about $215, Valentine said.
He said the 19-year-old was taken to the Police Station, booked and released pending application for warrants for alleged property damage, tampering with a motor vehicle and stealing.
At about 8:35 a.m., the 19-year-old allegedly was spotted in the same truck with the shattered window, but ran when he saw the owner approaching, Valentine said.
About an hour later, police went to the suspect’s home on Glatt Drive and found him there, along with the 29-year-old, who also lives at the home. Police also allegedly found items at the home that had been stolen from vehicles on Glatt Drive, Valentine said.
The two were arrested, taken to the Police Station and booked and then released on summonses to appear in Arnold Municipal Court for tampering, Valentine said.
