13-year-old Jerusalem resident suspected of over 25 break-ins

Jerusalem police on Wednesday arrested a 13-year-old teen suspected of more than two dozen break-ins in the city, police said. The suspect allegedly stole a variety of electronic appliances including DVDs, computer discs, radios and stereos from stores and private homes in his neighborhood, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. The teen, who has a past police record for similar crimes, was placed under house arrest at his sister's home for the next 30 days. Police noted, however, that the boy carried out several of the past break-ins while under house arrest.
