Laser incident points to burglary suspect

Police responding to a complaint Thursday evening in the 1400 block of S.E. 12th Street encountered a juvenile male who had reportedly been disturbing others by shining a laser pointer.

According to reports, police confiscated the laser pointer and questioned the 14-year-old suspect.

The suspect, also wanted for questioning in the burglary of a neighbor’s residence, reportedly confessed to both crimes.

The burglary, which occurred Aug. 26, took place at a home in the same street block, according to police. The suspect reportedly took $60 in change and food from the home’s freezer.

He was arrested for that crime and charged with felony burglary of a habitation.

Reports indicate the juvenile also told police he pointed the laser at airplanes. Police charged him with illumination of an aircraft by intense light, a Class C misdemeanor violation.

For shining the light at other individuals, police also charged the juvenile with disorderly conduct.
