Window smasher nabbed downtown

Midland police chased, caught and charged a man after a downtown business had its window smashed just after midnight on April 24.

Officers arrived at the King Street location and obtained a description of a suspect. About 30 minutes later, a second call brought police to another King Street business where someone was reportedly pounding on a window.

Officers tried to speak to a man who matched the earlier description, but he bolted from the scene. A short foot chase later, the 19-year-old Midland man was arrested and charged with mischief under $5,000.

He was released with a court date of May 28.
