Hmmm...burglary tools...I wonder how that will hold up in court. They need to prove intent and if they don't have it, then the police just caused a very expensive counter suit.

I am sure that anyone with a vehicle and toolbox on said vehicle could be considered carrying burglary tools.

Seems like a big stretch Auburn PD!

depends on what combination of tools.. it would be sad if he was just a handyman who smiled at a cops wife.

if he has something to unlock cars or something, who knows

Actually, it doesn't depend on the combo of tools. It depends on the combo of charges. If he was tresspassing with the tools then he's done. But just looking suspicious isn't enough to be charged with burglary tools. I am willing to bet, if there were no other charges filed, he walks. Police have to prove intent in front of the judge and if they say he was driving around the block numberous times, that is not enough.

A burglary tools charge has to go hand in hand with another charge.
