AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

On Friday, March 21 the Auburn Police Division arrested 29-year-old Jacob A. Rabren from Auburn on felony warrants charging him with two counts of breaking and entering a motor vehicle, two counts of theft of property third degree, one count of criminal mischief first degree and one count of criminal mischief third degree.

The arrests are the result of two investigations of police reports of breaking and entering motor vehicles, thefts of property and criminal mischiefs dated March 20, 2014.  The first investigation involved a 2011 Toyota Prius that was parked in the 100 block of Wright Street. 

The victim told officers that an unknown individual entered their vehicle and stole an electronic device valued at $100 and poured gasoline and set fire to the interior of the vehicle when they left, causing damage.

The second investigation involved a 2000 Ford Mustang that was parked at a business located in the 200 block of W. Magnolia Avenue. The victim in that case told officers that an unknown individual entered their vehicle and stole property valued at more than $180 and poured motor oil inside the vehicle, also causing damage before they fled the scene.

Detectives initiated investigations on both cases and during the course of those investigations, and Rabren was developed as a suspect.  Property from both auto burglaries and criminal mischief reports were recovered by police and connected him to the cases, in addition to the previous cases of burglary, theft and criminal mischief charges he was arrested for on March 20. 

Arrest warrants were executed on Rabren while he was incarcerated in the Lee County Jail.   These new charges resulted in an additional bond set at $11,500.
