SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A teen is facing 37 felonies that accuse him of breaking into cars near Tipperary Hill in Syracuse, police said.
A 16-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday by the Syracuse Police Department and charged with damaging and stealing from cars near Tipp Hill last weekend.
Nine cars were broken into early Saturday at St. Patrick’s Loft Apartments at 300 N. Lowell Ave, police said. Property was taken from some of the cars, police said.
Officer Jason Springer found the teen at 4:12 a.m. Tuesday near Tipp Hill in the 1200 block of West Fayette Street, said Officer Joseph Commisso, a police department spokesman. The teen was later arrested by Detective Scott Clarke, of the department’s Criminal Investigation Division.
The teen’s charges include multiple counts of third-degree criminal mischief and fourth-degree grand larceny. He was also charged with attempted third-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor.
The teen was arraigned Tuesday and is being held in the Hillbrook Juvenile Detention Center.
Syracuse police did not release the teen’s name.
