Three teenagers under the age of 18 are responsible for trying to steal ATV’s from the East Coast Cycle center during the early morning hours of August 17, 2022. Police saw them pull up to the business in a U-Haul and go into the back. When they spotted police, they ran away but were caught and charged with burglary and related offenses. How they got the U-Haul was not released by police.
During the same overnight time period, there were three thefts of vehicles. Just after 2:30 AM two males dressed in black got into the car, and drove south on Bristol Pike. The vehicle was left running with the keys inside.
Two more cars were stolen with the keys left inside the vehicles overnight, police said. One was on Bowman Avenue and the other on Elwood.
This is in addition to thieves stealing catalytic converters from vehicles parked in apartment complexes close to the city line.
