WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police have arrested a man they say they caught breaking into cars at a Wilmington apartment complex.

Officers responded to the Berkshires at Pecan Grove apartments in the 3400 block of Wilshire Blvd. after a concerned citizen called to report someone breaking into a car. The witness told police the man had already broken into three other cars.

When officers got there they found Rajohn Utley, 21. Police say all of the cars he broke into were unlocked.

Utley is charged with three counts of breaking or entering a motor vehicle. He is in jail under $60,000 bond.

The NC Department of Corrections website shows Utley has a criminal record dating back to 2009. It includes two dozen convictions for crimes including breaking into cars, larceny and drug possession.

2 DOZEN convictions? At age 21?

Let's get accurate here, there are 25 convictions to include 8 Felony convictions. Receiving stolen preoperty, stealing cars, multiple drug offenses, B&E's, mutliple home and vehicle larcenies, possession of stolen weapons, speeding to elude, on and on and on... These stories are like a broken record for those of you that remember what that is.

Now, Ol' Rajohn here is a young man at age 21 and has had 25 chances to make himself right with society, yet he continues to make choices that prove his actual intent on society. He is what he is and he does what he does. This isn't going to change. There is simply no excuse as to why this young man shouldn't spend the remainder of his life incarcerated at hard labor without ever experiencing freedom AND another opportunity to commit additional crimes against law abiding society.

His next opportunity will likely find him as a murderer if he is allowed to walk free. Our judicial system really works well doesn't it? Remember this when it comes time to vote in judges and District Attorneys.

"$60,000 is just more money in the Courts Bank!"

Now it will read:
"The NC Department of Corrections website shows Utley has a criminal record dating back to 2009. It includes two dozen (and 1) convictions for crimes including breaking into cars, larceny and drug possession."

Swing that door Judgey Wudgey!

Another prominent member of society

I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks to this gentleman for the great contributions to our society, his caring and respectful nature to the community. His enthusiasm for self-improvement by hard work and a self-reliant can-do nature. Let's not forget his abhorrence to crime and his dedication to observing the law. Without his industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.

Why do all these mug shots look like the people don't even have the sense God gave a turnip? I see them and all I think is "Duuhhhhhhh"

Technically...

"Police say all of the cars he broke into were unlocked."

it's entering without breaking...since all of the cars were unlocked. Lock your vehicle...regardless of where you live.

Never heard of that. If he

Never heard of that. If he went into someone's vehicle without permission, unlocked or not, it is still B & E.
