A sharp-eyed passerby noticed someone attempting to break into St. Johns business last night and called police for help.
When officers arrived to the Sundance Chevrolet Body Shop on the 200 block of W. Higham Street just before 11:00 p.m. and the front door to the business had been forced open.
They saw a young man running from the area and were able to stop him.
The 17-year-old St. Johns was arrested for breaking and entering and is being held in the Clinton County jail.
The suspect’s name has not been released while the Clinton County Prosecuting Attorney is considering formal charges.
