Police were called out to a string of car break-ins at the mall Saturday afternoon.

Investigators were able to get a license plate from the suspects car after watching surveillance video. Just so happens as they were interviewing some of the victims, the car burglar drove right by a couple of patrol officers near Everhart and Mcardle.

Cops caught up with the crook and arrested him. They say they found some of the stolen items inside his car along with his 2 year old son. CPS was called in to investigate. The man faces several charges.
