A car prowler was arrested on Thursday after he was caught in the act.

Yamhill County Sheriff's said a detective was performing surveillance near the 300 block of Cosmo Street in Lafayette. During the surveillance the detective saw a man dressed in all black acting suspicious.

The man was wearing a hood, mask, and gloves and walked into a private driveway.

The detective then saw the man attempt to open car doors, eventually getting into an unlocked vehicle and begin rifling through belongings.

The suspect, Edgardo Sanchez Rodriguez, 19, was arrested and charged with unlawful entry into a motor vehicle and criminal trespass in the second degree.

Rodriguez was taking to Yamhill County Jail and his bail is set at $7,500.

Deputies said Rodriguez was arrested in April 2015 for similar crimes.
