Twelve vehicles were hit on Bay Ridge and Kent avenues, but police did catch a suspect entering a car on Elkhart Avenue during the same time period.
More than a dozen vehicles were entered overnight Friday in the west end of Whitefish Bay. The good news is Whitefish Bay police were able to catch one man in the act.

Whitefish Bay Police Chief Michael Young, who was sworn in today, said the department is investigating the suspect's potential link to other recent auto entries in the village, including 12 auto entries over the weekend on Bay Ridge Avenue and Kent Avenue:
