The spate of vehicle-related thefts and break-ins is continuing.

Arlington County police say a group of four kids under the age of 18 broke into about seven cars in the residential Gulf Branch neighborhood early Tuesday morning.

Police managed to detain a suspect after a brief chase on foot, but no damage or thefts were reported and the victims declined to press charges.

More from an ACPD crime report:
