Man arrested for vehicular trespassing

A 42-year-old Chicago man was arrested for vehicular trespassing in the 700 block of Reba Place. A witness called the police to report a man pulling on car door handles around midnight on Wednesday.

When police responded, the man provided false names, Henry said. The man admitted to being in a vehicle that he did not own, and he claimed he intended to sleep. Officers found the vehicle with the door open and the vehicle’s contents ransacked.

The suspect was then found to have an outstanding warrant, leading to arrest charges for the warrant, the trespassing and obstruction.
