He was also able to witness the criminal activity. The suspect was contacted. He first claimed to be lost and using the flashlight to find his way. However, he had a backpack with lots of stolen items inside and later admitted he had been wandering in the High Point Rd. and Watt Rd. area stealing electronics and other items from unlocked vehicles.
