Cary police looking to arrest for man on vehicle trespassing charges

‘We anticipate that there’s a possibility that more people may come forward and say, ‘Hey, you know, my vehicle was gone through’ or ‘This was missing,’' Cary deputy chief says

An arrest warrant has been obtained by the Cary Police Department to find a man who allegedly attempted to break into a vehicle last week.

Officers from the Cary Police Department were dispatched in the early morning hours of June 3 to Lloyd Street to meet with a homeowner who said he interrupted someone trespassing in his vehicle, according to a news release.

The man caught trespassing was described as having facial hair and carrying a messenger bag, according to the release.

Officers found a man matching this description and the homeowner was brought to the scene, but was not absolutely sure that the man detained was the person he saw, according to the release. The man was released after being identified by department personnel.

After further investigation, police obtained video doorbell footage from a Lloyd Street resident showing the same man trying to enter several other vehicles in the area.

Because of this evidence, the police secured an arrest warrant for the man on one count of criminal trespass to a motor vehicle. The warrant has not been served, though additional criminal charges may be pursued.

Deputy Police Chief Scott Naydenoff said police could not identify the offender yet has he has not been arrested. The man’s last known address was in Waukegan, Naydenoff said.

“We anticipate that there’s a possibility that more people may come forward and say, ‘Hey, you know, my vehicle was gone through’ or ‘This was missing,’ ” Naydenoff said.
