An officer spotted the suspect in a nearby driveway and saw the man take something from his waistband and try to throw it under a parked car.

Caught in the Act
A man interrupted another man who was trying to break into his car last Tuesday around noon on the 2100 block of East 14th Street.
The victim told police that he saw a man tampering with his car and confronted him.
The suspect then ran to a waiting car and drove off, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the San Leandro police.
The witness gave a suspect description to the cops and several officers were called to the area to start a search.
A motorcycle cop spotted a man matching the suspect’s description near the intersection of Maud and Evergreen avenues.
The suspect abandoned his vehicle on the 800 block of Juana Avenue and tried running away on foot, Brandt said.
The suspect, a 24-year-old Oakland man, ran through several yards before being apprehended.
Police discovered that the car the man fled in was stolen, in addition to attempting to break in to the witness’ car.
