Boy Called 'One-Man Crime Wave' After Admitting To 60 Rochester Car Break-Ins

Police in Rochester Hills say they took into custody over the weekend the person responsible for breaking into more than 60 cars in the Rochester area since February.

And as they work to identify many of the recovered GPS units, iPods and other stolen items—and while they further investigate the case—the accused has been released to his parents.

He is 16.

Detective Lt. Ray White from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office called the boy a "one-man crime wave" in describing his wrongdoings over the past three months: in addition to the car break-ins the boy has admitted to stealing a car and breaking into a garage, which both can be considered felonies, White said.
