EDMOND, Oklahoma -- Edmond Police arrest a auto burglary suspect Wednesday in an Edmond neighborhood.

According to police, 22-year-old Aaron Blayne Baxter of Edmond was arrested on an auto burglary-less than $200 complaint.

Baxter was arrested after police responded to the Park Lane Estates addition off Danforth to investigate auto burglaries.

Police say a witness told them they saw a white man on a skateboard trying to open car doors in the neighborhood. Shortly after, officers saw a Nissan Maxima with a white man sitting in the passenger seat and a skateboard on the ground near the car.

Police say when the officer walked up to the car, the suspect opened the door. As he got out of the car, he stumbled, and a pager fell out of his lap onto the ground.

Police say the car belonged to a resident. When the officer looked inside the car, he found gift cards and a credit card on the floorboard in front of where the suspect had been sitting. Baxter told the officer the $13.50 in change in his pocket belonged to the owner of the car, as did the pager, police said. Police also recovered a phone charger and a blue lighter.

According to a police report, photographs were taken and officers returned the property to the victim.
