A 37-year-old eastern Jerusalem resident was apprehended red-handed as he was trying to break into vehicles on Museum Blvd. in Jerusalem. A routine police patrol saw the man moving from parked vehicle to vehicle, prompting them to call him over to ask for some identification.
An eyewitness told police he saw the man throw something as they approached. A search revealed he threw a key which he was using as he tried various car doors. They also found he was carrying a device that together with the key, would open a vehicle door.
The man was then placed under arrest and during questioning admitted he was trying to steal a car.
