A North Charleston man is accused of breaking into a car on Charleston’s Cooper Street on Jan. 6.

Donald Desmond Montez McFadden, 20, of Ferrara Drive, was arrested Tuesday and charged with breaking into a motor vehicle, Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis.

McFadden was being held in the Al Cannon Detention Center.

The incident occurred about 1 a.m. when someone forced down the rear passenger window of a vehicle and removed the stereo from the dashboard, Francis said.

Charleston Police were able to identify a suspect through forensic evidence recovered at the scene, Francis said.

The investigation is ongoing.
