Three teenagers have been arrested in connection with a series of vehicle break-ins.
According to information released today, on Monday an officer noticed the teens riding in a white Kia that had been reported stolen on Sunday. The officer stopped the vehicle for failing to stop at a stoplight, “immediately noticed” the personalized license plate of the vehicle and “advised dispatch of my location and that I was out with a stolen vehicle,” this officer wrote in his incident report.
Several other officers arrived and the three teens were arrested without incident, according to this report. In the vehicle were black gloves, flashlights and “tools commonly used to break into vehicles,” and several purses, bags and backpacks.
Also in the vehicle were bottles of rum and vodka and some beer. Based on what was in the vehicle, the officer found probable cause to arrest them on suspicion of motor vehicle theft, breaking and entering and theft of property from a vehicle.
The oldest suspect arrested is 18-year-old Angelo A. Neal of Conway. The other two, 17 and 16, are also from Conway.
