 Vandalism/Possession of Burglary Tools/Public Intoxication

Union City - 1508-0484

The station agent reported seeing a male suspect running away from a vehicle (silver 2005Honda Accord) after hearing glass breaking and an alarm sounding. Officers responded and confirmed the vehicle’s right rear window had been shattered. The officers also found some traces of blood on the exterior of the vehicle. Eventually, with the assistance of the station agent, officers detained the suspect in a nearby shopping center. During the detention, the suspect was found to be too intoxicated to care for his own safety due to his level of alcohol intoxication, in addition to having a pre-existing superficial wound to his right elbow/arm. A subsequent search of the suspect revealed he was in possession of small porcelain pieces, commonly used to burglarize vehicles; a criminal history check revealed he was on active probation for grand theft. While being interviewed, the suspect admitted breaking the vehicle’s window with his right arm, but denied any further wrongdoing. The officers were unable to substantiate an auto burglary had taken place, but placed the suspect under arrest for public intoxication, possession of burglary tools, vandalism and probation violation. A sergeant responded and approved the arrest. The suspect was then booked into the county jail. The suspect did not require medical attention for his injury, and an attempt was made to contact the vehicle’s registered owner.
