Details

 A Madison police sergeant spotted a stolen car on W. Gorham Street early Tuesday morning. He knew it was hot because the license plate and description had just been shared by an officer who was on the scene of a Monroe St. burglary. The driver was pulled over and arrested on tentative charges listed above. Back on Monroe St., the victim was describing how he had awakened and realized it was very cold in his home. He discovered the kitchen window was open with its screens lying in the backyard. The victim's cell phone, snowboard and car keys were missing. He soon realized his car was gone too. While the car was recovered, other items stolen were not.
