A 35-year-old Duluth man was arrested for tampering with a vehicle Monday night at Lake Avenue and Fourth Street after he admitted to Duluth police officers that he broke the window to the car he was standing by.

Officers found the man about 9:30 p.m. drinking a beer and eating chips he had stolen out of a car that wasn't his, according to a Duluth Police Department news release. Police said he admitted to using a rock to smash the window of the car and attempting to break into others in the area. Police said they found methamphetamine and a syringe on the man as well.

The man was sent to St. Louis County Jail and is awaiting expected charges of theft, tampering with a vehicle, drinking in public and drug possession. The News Tribune generally does not identify people accused of crimes until they are formally charged.

The man has convictions dating back to 1996, including felony drug and check forgery, criminal sexual conduct and damage to property, according to police.
