Marine chases down thief who broke into vehicle in base housing


A military family was busy getting their children ready for bed on base when Marine Corps Staff Sergeant Jesse Stevenson noticed a group of teenagers breaking into his car. He took off after the kids, even though he was wearing flip-flops.

“Being in the military, he was just telling me it was his first instinct,” Danielle told WTKR. “I thought that was pretty funny because he was in flip-flops chasing this kid down the street and caught him.”

SSgt Stevenson recovered the couple’s Kindle, an iPod and set of keys belonging to the neighbor’s car. Police believe that the teens may be involved in other neighborhood break-ins as well.

The military family lived in Lincoln Military base housing on Norfolk, the Village at Whitehurst Farm.
