FALLS MAN CHARGED IN THEFT OF CAR

A fingerprint lifted at the scene of a crime led to the arrest of a 13th Street man Friday, Detective John Donner said.

Everette L. Downing Jr., 32, of 165 13th St. was charged with third-degree criminal mischief and petit larceny at 9:45 a.m. after he was accused of breaking into a car behind Nick's Sunoco Station on Pine Avenue and 10th Street on Oct. 6, causing $500 damage and taking a $700 compact disc player, Donner said.

Donner said he and Detective Anthony Conte made the arrest after Identification Officer Patrick Donohue lifted a fingerprint off the car window and matched it with Downing's fingerprints.
