Pevely Police arrested a juvenile they found inside a car he reportedly was rummaging through after breaking into it. Nothing appeared stolen from the vehicle, Chief Mark Glenn reported.

He said the incident occurred at about 10:30 p.m. July 27 in the 100 block of Main Street.

“Officers responded to a call about someone rummaging through a vehicle,” Glenn said. “Officers located a juvenile inside it. The juvenile was taken into custody and turned over to juvenile authorities.”

Glenn said it looked like the juvenile “jimmied the lock with a coat hanger” to break into the 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier.

He said he would not release any other information about the juvenile.
