Vehicle theft in the Administration parking lot ended with an arrest on Feb. 10.

At about 1:20 p.m., the Public Safety office received a call reporting a white male adult pulling car door handles in the administration parking lot.

Afterward, the same person called back saying the man had entered a red vehicle.

Public Safety senior officer Marco Sifuentes arrived at the scene, and after confirming the man had no ownership or connection to the red vehicle and had stolen change from inside of it, took him into custody for theft from a vehicle.

The Bakersfield Police Department was then called and later took the suspect into custody.

During a search of the suspect’s belongings, a hypodermic needle was discovered, which the suspect identified as containing heroin.

The suspect was also charged with possession of a controlled substance.

“I would like to thank the person who got involved and called in the information to Public Safety. With the assistance of our students, staff, and faculty working together to get involved and call in to Public Safety when they see something that they believe to be wrong or suspicious, [we] make our campus a safer place for our entire community,” said Public Safety director Christopher Counts in an email to the Bakersfield College community.
