On Sunday Auburn police arrested and charged a 15-year-old male juvenile of Auburn for breaking and entering into a car, fourth-degree theft of property, fleeing and attempting to elude an officer and second-degree possession of marijuana.
At around 6:30 p.m., the Auburn Police Division responded to a call reporting a car being broken into in the 300 block of Webster Road.
When they arrived on the scene, police said they saw a person matching a suspect description given to them and attempted to contact him. Police said the suspect then fled, leading to a brief foot chase that ended with his arrest.
The young suspect allegedly broke into a 2018 Chevy Malibu and stole cash from inside the vehicle. Police said they also found a small quantity of marijuana on the suspect.
The 15-year-old was transported to the Lee County Youth Development Center where he remains in custody pending a hearing. APD does not release the identities of juvenile suspects.
