CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Five juvenile males have been arrested following several automotive break-ins that occurred late Saturday night, September 26, on Rosehaven Drive in Conway, according to a police report from the Conway Police Department.
The police report shows two of the juveniles are age 14, one is age 15, and two are 16 years old.
Officers with the CPD responded to the Rosehaven Subdivision for a possible automotive breaking and entering in progress and observed five subjects walking from the area the incident had occurred. Three of the juveniles fled on foot and two stayed behind when the officers stopped to get out of their vehicle, the release states.
After officers located all five juveniles, they admitted to being in the area and one of the juveniles revealed that they all entered several unlocked vehicles and removed items from the vehicles.
One of the officers was conducting a foot patrol and observed a vehicle with the driver's door partially opened and items scattered on the passenger's seat; prescription sunglasses and a case were found in the front yard and the victim at this residence confirmed the vehicle had been entered into and removed.
One of the officers was conducting a follow-up investigation around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning and was trying to get one of the arrestees to assist him in determining which vehicles he and the other suspects had entered and stolen items from.
Upon contact with a resident on Rosehaven Drive, it was determined the victim's black 2015 Nissan Juke was broken into and $6 was taken from the vehicle, the police report states.
Back in August, eight break-ins occurred on Rosehaven Drive; seven for breaking and entering into automobiles and one for second-degree burglary, according to police reports from CPD.
At this time, WMBF News does not know if the incidents are related.
