Press Release - Two Juvenile Subjects Arrested for Thefts from Motor Vehicles

On Wednesday, August 28, 2014 at 3 a.m. the City of Milton Police Department arrested two 16-year-old males from Milton for Theft and Party to a Crime Theft. The two juvenile subjects had entered, and attempted to enter numerous vehicles in the City of Milton shortly before they were arrested. The vehicles were located on Merchant Row, Crandall Street, 2nd Street, Rogers Street, and Tower Hill Drive. The subjects successfully entered and took cell phones and cash from two of the vehicles. They also entered approximately 8 other vehicles; however, they did not steal anything from those vehicles. They also pulled on the doors of at least 20 other vehicles; however, they did not enter those vehicles because they were locked. The vehicles were located on the street, in driveways, and in an alley.

The subjects were in a vehicle when they were pulled over by the police and were found in possession of the stolen items. They confessed to their part in the crimes.

An alert citizen noticed the subjects attempting to enter vehicles as they walked down the street at approximately 2:30 a.m. and called 911. They were referred to juvenile authorities for the Theft and for the Party to a Crime – Theft charges.

As usual, please remove all valuables and lock your car doors when they are parked on the street and in your driveway. The people that had their doors locked were not victimized. Thieves will generally not force their way into a locked vehicle unless they see some sort of item of value in plain sight.
