Around 12:45 a.m. on Saturday, police received a call from a citizen who reported seeing people tampering with vehicles along the 4100 block of S. Four Mile Run Drive. Officers responded to the area, established a perimeter and located the two suspects matching the descriptions the witness provided.
Investigators determined that eight vehicles had been broken into and rummaged through, and several had items of value stolen. Most of the vehicles had not been locked.
The 16- and 17-year-old suspects both face charges in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. Police have not linked them to other recent car break-in cases throughout the county, but the investigation is ongoing.
