CARY, N.C. (WNCN) — An Apex man was arrested at a Raleigh pawn shop just a day after police publicized an SUV break-in case in Cary, officials said.
The break-in and theft from a vehicle involved a gray BMW SUV and happened around 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Waverly Place Shopping Center in the 500 block of New Waverly Place, according to a Friday news release from the Cary Police Department.
People nearby who saw the incident called police about a man breaking into the SUV in the parking lot, the news release said. At least one person recorded video of the incident.
Police said a warrant was issued for Dustin Zaner-Bowen, 26, of Apex.
Police said Saturday they were unsure if he had any connection to various other car break-ins at four hotels that happened a day after the BMW incident.
On Saturday morning, officers from the Raleigh Police Department found Zaner-Bowen at a Capital Boulevard pawn shop, according to Cary police and arrest records.
Raleigh police arrested him and served him with the Cary Police Department warrant of larceny from auto, Cary police said.
