A 27-year-old man was arrested June 22 for allegedly breaking into at least two vehicles parked near the intersection of East 10th Avenue and North Langdon Street in Mitchell.

Samuel Courtney Farrell faces two counts of criminal entry of a motor vehicle after police received a report from a resident of Farrell allegedly taking items from inside her car. The person who called in the report told police Farrell took items out of her car and tossed them onto her lawn, then entered another vehicle, court documents say.

Mitchell Patrol Officer Nick Jongeling located Farrell, and according to the documents, the reporting resident was able to positively identify him as the person who broke into her car.

Farrell faces a maximum of one year in jail and a $2,000 fine for each count. He is scheduled to appear in court in July.
