SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) — A 12-year-old boy has been arrested for breaking into a suburban Detroit bank after riding his bike there in the middle of the night.

Southfield police spokesman Lt. Nick Loussia tells The Associated Press that the boy broke a window about 3 a.m. Friday to get inside a Bank of America branch.

The boy set off the emergency alarm and the bank's security company told police that video showed a suspect inside.

Officers found the bicycle near the front door and say the boy had "property from the bank on his person."

WDIV-TV broadcast video of the child being led out in handcuffs. The video also shows what appeared to be cash and rolls of coins on a counter inside the bank.

The boy was turned over to his mother.
