A 23-year-old Moraga man is in custody Tuesday after Emeryville police officers reportedly found him in the passenger seat of a truck parked outside the Oliver Loft Condominiums in their city – a truck that did not belong to him.
Officers arrested Alex Mills on Monday after noticing the cab of the truck had been ransacked, with Mills on probation for identity theft with a search clause. During the resulting search of Mills and his property, officers allegedly located personal information belonging to several different people.
Police contacted the owner of the truck, who stated he did not know Mills and that he had not granted him permission to be in his truck.
Mills was arrested for auto burglary, possession of stolen property and probation violation and was taken to jail, police reported.
