BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Robbery detectives arrested one man and are looking for another suspected of breaking into a bait car. They credited a Crime Stoppers tip with helping to identify the man they took into custody.

According to the Baton Rouge Police Department, John Sarhan, 21, broke into its bait car back in October. He was arrested Tuesday night and charged with simple burglary. Investigators do not yet know the name of the second guy, but they are hoping someone in the area does and calls them with the information they need to send him to jail.

The case brings up an important point many people have been wondering about for some time. They want to know how suspects get away from the car. They have asked questions like: Doesn't the car lock the suspect in? and Why aren't police watching the car to catch those who break into it?
