She called out for help and several residents helped detain the suspect until police arrived.

Further investigations by Fifth Squad detectives revealed that Keene was responsible for dozens of car break-ins in which he would ride around on his bicycle looking for unlocked vehicles.  In July and August, Keene stole cash, wallets, pocketbooks, jewelry, gift cards and electronics left in the vehicles at the following locations:

  • Matsunaye Drive in Medford
  • Patrician Lane in Medford
  • Meyer Lane in Medford
