MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Two men were arrested Feb. 16 for being involved in multiple vehicle break-ins, according to a press release from Myrtle Beach Police Department.

A police officer located and stopped a stolen vehicle. Riki Mozingo and Ronald Dunham II were then taken into custody, the release states.

Detectives seized items during the stop and found it consistent with the items that were taken from the vehicle break-ins.

Both men were charged 16 counts of breaking into motor vehicles and one count of larceny.

Riki Mozingo was later developed as a suspect in a burglary auto case at Broadway at the Beach.

On Feb. 28, a victim stated that his Ford F350 was broken into at Broadway at the Beach. He said that he noticed that his Columbia jacket was stolen from his backseat along with his black glock 42 that was inside of his jacket. He also said that two black holsters were also stolen from his backseat, according to a police report.

The police officer said that he didn’t observe any force entry to the vehicle.

Broadway security reviewed the video footage and said that a black Ford Focus was roaming the area and it appeared to be occupied by two white males.

She said that it appeared to be the same car that was involved in another burglary that occurred on Feb. 22.

The release states that the majority of the vehicles involved in these incidents were left unlocked. The keys were also left with the stolen vehicle.

The Myrtle Beach Police Department strongly encourages everyone to lock their doors, remove all valuable items from out of sight, and to not leave keys inside the vehicle.
