Authorities pursued him after an anonymous caller reported witnessing the juvenile wearing a ski mask, checking door handles of parked motor vehicles then ultimately entering an unlocked vehicle.

During a search incident to custody, officers recovered numerous personal items of various
victims on the juvenile’s person, including but not limited to, loose change, cash, health insurance cards, department store membership cards, various electronic accessories and bank cards, police said.
