SACRAMENTO - A man was arrested for multiple theft charges after police found him hiding inside a garbage can early Saturday morning.
Officers happened to be nearby when they heard, what sounded like, reckless driving on the 6500 block of Nolder Way around 4 a.m. They headed toward the sound to investigate and saw 32-year-old Kevin Batholomew run away from a car, Sacramento police said.
The officers followed Batholomew and found him hiding inside a nearby garbage can with burglary tools on him, police said. Once he was taken into custody, officers went back to the car near which Batholomew was seen.
Police said the car was reported stolen and the officers found property inside that was recently reported missing.
Bartholomew was booked into Sacramento County Jail for charges of resisting, burglary, possession of stolen property and burglary tools and vehicle theft.
