— A tele­phone call from an ob­ser­vant res­i­dent led to the re­cov­ery of stolen prop­erty, ac­cord­ing to Po­lice Chief Allen Miller.

“A res­i­dent called Satur­day night and said there’s a guy out there walk­ing around and look­ing in car win­dows,” Miller said Thurs­day of the call that came from the town­house com­mu­nity off French­town Road known as French­town Cross­ing. “Our of­fi­cer finds the guy ... and looks in his ve­hi­cle.”

Miller said in­side the Dodge Ram pickup was a lap­top com­puter, pel­let gun, sun­glasses, a GPS, cloth­ing and other items.

“We made an that,” he said.

Daishai Laken Smith, 23, from Perry Point, faces 11 charges, eight for rogue and vagabond — which refers to break­ing and en­ter­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle and, or, steal­ing its con­tents — and three for theft un­der $100.

He was freed af­ter post­ing a $2,500 bond Satur­day, Nov. 24.

“They found elec­tric drills, lawn and gar­den items hid­den in the bushes,” prop­erty along Broad Miller said. Among the items near the for­mer Muller-Thyme prop­erty was a bi­cy­cle and a back­pack.

“We rec­og­nized the back­pack from one of our home­less peo­ple in town,” the chief said.

Once all the prop­erty was taken to po­lice head­quar­ters, a call came in from a res­i­dent stat­ing his shed had been bro­ken into and items were miss­ing. Of­fi­cers matched all the re­cov­ered items to that bur­glary, Miller said. An ar­rest in that case is pend­ing. Mean­while, the search is on for the own­ers of the prop­erty re­cov­ered along Rus­tic Court.

Miller said he does not be­lieve the two in­ci­dents are con­nected.
