Comments () A Text Size

An 18-year-old and two 19-year-old men were arrested this week after they allegedly burglarized multiple vehicles in Denton County neighborhoods, Carrollton police said.

The vehicle burglaries occurred on the nights of May 22-23 and June 8-9 in the Arbor Creek Drive and Spurwood Lane neighborhoods.

Police said the suspects traveled together and do not reside in Carrollton. A total of 18 cases were cleared based on the arrests, police said.

Police believe one or two additional groups are committing vehicle burglaries in the city and urge residents to help prevent theft by removing valuables from their cars and locking the vehicles.
