Four individuals ranging in age from 11 to 17 years old were detained this morning for breaking into as many as 12 cars last night and early this morning. Det. Tim Lezette of the Mint Hill Police Department said GPS devises, CDs, phones, sun glasses and cameras were some of the more than 50 items taken from the cars. Most of the victims were in the Oxfordshire and Wilson Woods neighborhoods.

The police were dispatched to a reported vehicle break in on Willhill Road at 5 am this morning. Officers arrived in the area and quickly spotted several individuals in a golf cart. The individuals were detained and a short time later it was determined that the individuals had been out breaking into vehicles.  They were questioned and at this time have been turned over to their parents.

Once all the victims and property have been identified, charges will be sought against the individuals involved. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Mint Hill Police Department and ask to speak with Det. Lezette at (704) 545-1085.
