A College Station man was arrested by Texas A&M University police on Thursday after investigators suspected him of breaking into a car at Hensel Park on Tuesday morning and stealing a computer, according to a police report.
A man was meeting his wife at Hensel Park on Tuesday about 8 a.m. when he left his car parked and went to get coffee, the police report said. When he returned to his car two hours later, the man found his driver's side window shattered and a brand new Macbook Air laptop was missing.
The Macbook was eventually discovered at an EZ Pawn in Bryan, where the suspect exchanged the laptop approximately five minutes after the victim reported the burglary.
The report said university officers found Michael Anthony Coleman and arrested him Thursday. During booking, the arresting officer found in Coleman's pocket an EZ Pawn receipt showing the laptop was pawned in Coleman's name, the report said.
Coleman, 22, is facing one charge each of burglarizing a vehicle, possession of drug paraphernalia and theft of property valued between $50 and $500. He was being held Brazos County Jail on Saturday in lieu of $6,200 bail.
