Colorado Springs police said several cars were broken into as at least one suspect allegedly shattered vehicle windows and stole items at an apartment complex Thursday.

Earvin Kareem Jamal Mosley, 25, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree criminal trespassing and an unrelated warrant, police said. He is held at the El Paso County jail on a $6,000 bond, records show.

Colorado Springs police were dispatched to the Cheyenne Meadows Apartments off Highway 115 and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway to calls of a series of vehicle break-ins shortly before 1 a.m.

As police approached the apartment complex in nearby Westmeadow Drive, they spotted a man matching the caller's description of the alleged car thief and tried to contact him, but the man fled, police said.

Officers set up a perimeter and a K-9 search was conducted, ending when they found a man who was coming out of a drainage ditch close to the area of the car break-ins, police said.

The man was identified as Mosley and taken into custody without incident. Police said as many as four cars were broken into Thursday morning, but have not specified if the suspect was working alone or more people were involved in the alleged break-ins.
