Police say a man suspected in a string of crimes on the northeast side of Colorado Springs was caught red-handed inside a stolen vehicle Friday night.

The man identified as Alexander Lungenbeel was contacted by officers just after 10:30 p.m. while parked in the Harmony Bowl parking lot on North Academy. According to police, the vehicle he was in was stolen earlier that day.

After investigating, officers say Lungenbeel was found with several items he had bought using stolen credit cards. Lungenbeel was allegedly also caught on surveillance camera at O'Reilly's Auto Parts buying items with a stolen card.

Police say Lungenbeel confessed to committing a number of crimes in the Stetson Hills area. He was taken into custody, though CJC records indicate he has since bonded out.
