KINGSTON — Police arrested a man they are familiar with when he was spotted trying to enter vehicles on Chestnut Avenue near Lackawanna Lane early Friday morning.
Shaun Baker, 25, was seen by Officer Jason Zoshak riding a bicycle on Price Street just before 3 a.m.
Baker rested the bicycle against a tree and attempted to enter vehicles on Chestnut Avenue, police said.
Police said Bakeer had several small items in a backpack that may have been stolen from other vehicles overnight.
Anyone who may have had their vehicle entered and items stolen is asked to call Kingston police at 570-288-3674.
Baker was charged with two counts of possession of instruments of crime and a single count of criminal attempt to commit theft from a vehicle. He was arraigned by District Judge Donald Whittaker in Nanticoke and released without bail.
Court records say Baker was arrested by Kingston police in October on numerous vehicle break-ins and burglaries. He was also arrested by Plains Township police in February when he allegedly rummaged through vehicles along Briar Creek Road, according to court records.
