Vehicle burglary suspect arrested

The Wilson Post

Lebanon Police arrested an 18-year-old man on Tuesday who was suspected of breaking into vehicles in the Oak Hill subdivision.

Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen said the suspect, Andre A. Fleming, 18, of 215 Ward Street, Apartment B, Lebanon, was charged with one count of burglary and one count of theft of property.

Fleming, the chief noted, was out on bond after being charged in another case.

Bowen said officers were conducting extra patrols after several vehicle burglaries had occurred in the Crosswinds and Oak Hill subdivisions. Officers had observed what he termed was a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot off West Main Street on Monday. They were patrolling in Oak Hill where they discovered some cars had been broken into although nothing was missing. When they went back, the officers noticed the vehicle from the parking lot was gone.

A description of the vehicle was issued, and officers later found it and stopped it on East Market Street where they obtained permission to search it. Bowen said officers reportedly found several thousands of dollars worth of electronics equipment inside the vehicle.

The victim in the case came in, the chief said, and identified the items, and Fleming was charged.

Bowen said when Fleming was arrested on Tuesday, he had been arrested previously and was out on bond after having been charged with aggravated robbery, theft of property and burglary in another case.

I cant say enough about our officers, he said, adding they recovered the items reportedly stolen before the burglary was reported by the victim.

The chief said it was frustrating to him and officers that the suspect was out on bond allegedly committing another crime after having been arrested previously and still facing charges in that case.

We went ahead and charged him to get him off the streets, Bowen said. Hes 18 (facing) three felony charges and hes 18 years of age.
