The incident happened recently, just after 2 am, when the non-uniformed officers noticed a man peering into several vehicles.

They recognized the man as a reoccurring offender, before the suspect approached the undercover cops.

He asked them if they knew how to steal a car and if they would be willing to help him. The officers did not immediately arrest him and instead watched for a time, as he wandered down the streets, looking for other accomplices.

They eventually arrested him and charged the man with mischief and five counts of breaching his probation.
