Two teens have been arrested in connection with a week-long crime spree targeting cars in Danville.
The teens, both boys, ages 15 and 17, face charges in 11 auto burglaries and break-ins, Danville police Sgt. Allan Shields said, adding the two were found in possession of stolen property.
The pair was arrested in connection with eight vehicle burglaries in the 200 block of Stetson Drive, two in the 400 block of Jonathan Ridge Drive and one on Zenith Ridge Drive. Shields said they were looking for unlocked cars and smashed some windows to get inside locked cars.
Community Service Officer Claudia Ray said the teens were specifically looking for GPS units and iPods.
There were 15 auto burglaries last week in Danville, police reports show. Ray said there are a few simple steps that can deter thieves from breaking into cars.
"Lock it. Keep items out of sight. Keep it in the garage," she said. "You'd be surprised how many people don't lock their cars."
Ray said she's constantly amazed how many people on any given day at the local Starbuck leave their cars unlocked and running with valuable items in full view.
