Client charged as a juvenile with theft and 1st degree criminal trespass, a class five felony, for breaking into cars and stealing audio equipment. Police contacted our client when he ran from police who were patrolling a parking lot. Police chased our client and found him just after he entered his automobile. The police recovered items stolen from another vehicle in the parking lot inside our client’s vehicle. The case proceeded to a motion hearing where our attorneys challenged the police contact with our client based solely upon his decision to run from police. The judge agreed that the stop was invalid and the police had no justified reason to stop our client. The case was dismissed.
