Officers were dispatched to Vernon street for a report of an attempted B&E. Dispatch provided officers with a description of the suspect and told officers that they were last seen in a white vehicle. At approximately 7:10 AM officers observed an individual matching the description acting suspiciously, walking from door to door on Vernon street. The officers decided to wait and observe the suspects actions before making contact. The suspect then stopped on one front porch, and placed a few small porcelain vases into a backpack. They then returned to their vehicle and drove off. After witnessing this crime, officers made contact and stopped the vehicle.
During the traffic stop the backpack containing the stolen vases was discovered on the passenger seat. The suspect told police that the vases belonged to a friend. Officers made contact with the victim and told them what had just happened. They confirmed that they were indeed missing vases off their front porch, and confirmed that the ones in the possession of the suspect were the missing items. Because of this fact, the suspect was placed under arrest for larceny and attempted B&E.
