Police arrested an 18-year-old man on multiple charges Sunday evening in connection with a burglary of a vehicle, reports show.
A 31-year-old Flower Mound resident heard his vehicle’s alarm go off Sunday while parked in the 7600 block of Mosspoint Court in Denton. When he went to check on his vehicle, he saw a teenager next to the driver’s side door. Police said when the victim challenged the teen, he took off running.
Reports show that after the 31-year-old man lost sight of the teen and could no longer chase him on foot, he returned to his vehicle and noticed his belongings inside had been ransacked and he was missing a knife.
Officers later located the teen at the intersection of Cordero Court and Mira Vista Drive. During transport, police said the suspect attempted to kick out the back driver’s side window of the patrol unit and caused damage.
Police said he was found in possession of marijuana as well as being a minor consuming alcohol. The teen was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, minor in consumption of alcohol, burglary of a vehicle, criminal mischief more than $50 less than $500, as well as having an outstanding warrant for contempt of court from the Grand Prairie Police Department.
