— A Raleigh man was arrested Monday accused of breaking into cars at a police substation and stealing a police badge.

Kevin Douglas is accused of taking a police badge and then posting it on his MySpace page as if it was his own, officials said.

Douglas is accused of breaking into five vehicles at the Southwest District Station on Hutton Street. Four of those vehicles were owned by Raleigh Police officers. The fifth was a city owned vehicle.

The officer’s vehicles were unlocked at the time of the theft, a police spokesperson said.

Douglas was being held on a $52,000 bond at the Wake County Jail.
