An alleged car prowler was arrested when Post Falls police found him asleep early this morning in one of the cars he’s suspected of burglarizing.

Jason D. Hill, 33, was found inside the car around 4:20 a.m. on the 3800 block of East Second Avenue.

Hill was wearing gloves and appeared to have been removing the stereo from the car he fell asleep in, a news release from the police department said.

Police also found another stolen stereo, along with burglary tools, wallets and a cell phone. Police determined that several vehicles in the same parking lot had been burglarized and the items found on Hill, along with items found inside the car, belong to the other victims, the release said.

Hill also had a felony warrant out of Washington state for attempting to elude police. A separate stolen vehicle was found a short distance away.

Hill was booked into Kootenai County jail on suspicion of auto burglary, possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance and being a fugitive from justice.
