Officers arrest teenager accused of breaking into cars

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Police arrested a 16-year-old boy accused of breaking into two cars at a neighborhood on Lowndes Pointe Drive Wednesday night.

Charleston police say the teen was arrested minutes after police dispatchers received a telephone call about four suspicious males looking into cars in the area.

Authorities charged the teen with two counts of breaking into a motor vehicle and larceny. The teen was released to the custody of his mother.

According to a police report, officers initiated a consensual stop on the teen after officers saw the teen leaving the subdivision on foot. Police say the teen was found with a large amount of coins in all four of his pants pockets and a pair of sunglasses.

The teenager told officers that the coins were from his piggy bank and he was in the subdivision visiting his grandmother.

The investigation revealed that the coins and sunglasses were taken from two unlocked cars on Lowndes Pointe Drive and that his grandmother didn't live in the subdivision.

One of the victims from the break-ins came to the scene and positively identified the sunglasses as his property.
