An Atmore man was arrested February 22 after police responded around 7:52 p.m. to the 300 block of Howard Street in reference to an attempted theft.
When officers arrived, they determined that a male, later identified as 28-year-old Bradley Auston Baker, had attempted to steal a vehicle.
Officers found Baker a short distance away and took him into custody. He is charged with one count of first-degree attempted theft of property, a Class C felony.
Baker was released last weekend from the Escambia County Detention Center on bond.
