A neighbor in the Brentwood area gave us information yesterday along with this photo of the arrest. Thank you to the neighbors who called police when they encountered suspicious activity.
A little police action in Brentwood this morning. Appears this person was attempting to break into a neighbor’s car. There was a great response from police as you can see the ‘perp’ is being placed in the back of the police car.
