5 teens arrested in Moncks Corner burglaries

Posted: Updated:

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCIV) -- Five juveniles were arrested after police say they were connected to a string of Moncks Corner burglaries. 

According to police, the victims found that their back doors and windows had been kicked in or pried open and the suspects had taken laptops, cellphones, tablets, cash, jewelry, television and guns. 

At least two of the homes had been broken into twice, officials said. 

Investigators were able to identify two of the suspects last week, and one more was arrested after being caught burglarizing a home in Berkeley County, officials said. That arrest led to the identification of three more suspects and officers got search warrants for their homes. 

On Tuesday, the fourth suspect was arrested after police executed the search warrant and found a stolen phone and a stolen rifle that had also been used to shoot into two houses in the Oak Hill subdivision. 

Four of the teens are being held in the Department of Juvenile Justice in COlumbia. Police say each of them face burglary charges. Three of them face charges of discharging a weapon into a dwelling. 

Moncks Corner police are forwarding their findings to the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office for burglaries that happened in the county. 

Police said the identities of the teens arrested are not being released because of their age.
