A panhandler was arrested Friday morning for committing crimes in and around Palmer Park.
Police say Timothy Taylor broke into two vehicles parked at trailheads, and one vehicle in a nearby Arby's parking lot. Authorities say he would break into the vehicles and take what he could, including cash, purses and credit cards.
All of the stolen items have been returned to the victims.
Police add it's never a good idea to leave your belongings in your car; you should always take them with you.
