January 29, 1999|By Richard Irwin | Richard Irwin,SUN STAFF

Police said a man who was arrested yesterday in Southeast Baltimore gave them information on thefts from 60 vehicles in Fells Point and Little Italy.

Earlier this month, the man was arrested in the Central District and gave officers details of thefts from more than 100 vehicles in the downtown area, said Lt. Richard James of the Southeastern District.

After the earlier arrest, the man was charged with one count of theft from an auto and released on his own recognizance, James said.

James said the man was arrested yesterday after officers saw him acting suspiciously and charged him with being a rogue and vagabond.

While being interviewed, he gave police information about thefts from vehicles in Little Italy and Fells Point over the past several months.

"We cleared 60 thefts from autos based on his information," James said.

James said the man was charged with larceny from an automobile in downtown Baltimore during the arrest in Central District.

Before he was released, the man provided police with information on property, valued at $70,000, that had been stolen from more than 100 vehicles in the downtown area over the past year, James said.

James said Mark D. Hisley, 42, of the 200 block of S. Chapel St. was being held at Central Booking and Intake Center, pending a bail hearing.
