Teens charged in burglary spree

Two teens accused of a burglary spree in Vicksburg and Warren County were in juvenile detention today.

The two 16-year-olds were arrested Wednesday night by Warren County investigator Todd Dykes and taken to the Warren County Youth Detention Center, Sheriff Martin Pace said.

The teens are accused of breaking into eight vehicles in the county and city on Wednesday.

“Some of these burglaries had not even been reported when detective Dykes contacted the victims to help identify the property,” Pace said.

All the burglaries involved automobiles or ATVs, Pace said. Two of the burglaries happened in the 400 block of Garden Grove Street, and two occurred in the 400 block of Evans Street. Another happened in the 500 block of Oak Woods, Pace said.

Three of the break-ins occured in the city on Lakewood Hills, Lakewood Road and Chapel Hill Road, he said.

“None of these vehicles had any signs of forced entry,” he said.

They are also accused of attempting to break into a grocery store at Lee Road and Indiana Avenue, Pace said.

“Entry was not gained but there was damage to a window,” he said.

Items stolen in the burglaries included a .45-caliber gun, designer sunglasses, flashlights, radar detectors, clothing, jewelry, and cellphone accessories, Pace said.

“Most all of this has been recovered including the firearm,” he said.
