A Storm Lake man was arrested for stealing items from vehicles in the Tyson Pork Plant parking lot area.

Storm Lake Police were called to the area around 6:30 Tuesday morning. Tyson security officers reported that they saw a person trying to enter parked cars in the parking lot. A clothing description was provided of the suspect, who was located at the scene and identified by police as 29-year-old Toe Kye of Storm Lake.

Kye allegedly entered unlocked parked cars and removed items from the vehicles. Kye was charged with three counts of Burglary to a Motor Vehicle, an aggravated misdemeanor. He was booked into the Buena Vista County Jail on a two-thousand dollar bond.

The investigation is continuing, and more charges are possible.
