Monday morning at about 11:10 a.m., Officers Michael Janusz and Stan Meiser responded to a burglary of a motor vehicle in the 2400 block of Mimosa Drive. A concerned citizen contacted APD dispatch and stated that two male subjects were peering into apartment and vehicle windows. The calling party stayed on the phone with dispatch and was able to further describe their suspicious behavior and further alleged that one of the subject's had entered a vehicle. The calling party provided a thorough description of only one of the subjects because the other subject kept disappearing. Officers located the subject described by the calling party in a parking lot in the 3400 block of Sherry Lane.

However, a records check confirmed that the male subject had an outstanding arrest warrant for misdemeanor possession of marijuana. The subject was arrested for the warrant.
