Police say a Flint-area man borrowed a neighbor's car and drove into a nearby community where he stole two other vehicles and broke into at least two homes.

Flushing police Chief Mark Honester tells The Flint Journal the unnamed 22-year-old Flushing Township man's crime spree already was under way on Feb. 10 when the borrowed car broke down.

Hoornstra says the man then swiped a Jeep and later a Crown Victoria.

Summing up the night's activity, the chief says the man was "pretty busy."

Hoornstra says the suspect had been told that if he stayed in Flushing, he wouldn't get caught, because there wasn't 24/7 police coverage.

He's being held in the Genesee County jail. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
