Teenager arrested after allegedly trying to steal police officer’s truck

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A 17-year-old man has been arrested and charged with Breaking and Entering an Automobile after an off-duty police officer observed someone breaking into his own truck around 1:15 Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Wilmington Police Department, the officer saw Hunter Lee Costen look into a van that was parked in the officer’s driveway on Headwater Cove Lane and try unsuccessfully to open the door. When the officer saw Costen approach his truck, he retrieved his department-issued weapon, and went outside to find the suspect halfway inside the truck.

The officer placed Costen in handcuffs and called 911 for an on-duty officer to respond. His bond has not been confirmed.

Three other break-ins occurred in the same neighborhood the night before. Those cases are now under review.
