While the officers were examining the car the man was spotted in, they came across a second car they found with its motor running and with a number of items strewn around inside the car, police said.

Meanwhile, the officers found two more cars nearby that appeared to have had their windows shattered.

Owners of three different cars were contacted and identified as their own the items that were found inside the car that police found with its motor running.
