Two teens charged in Spring Hill car break-ins

SPRING HILL — Two juveniles who broke into cars — stealing everything from GPS devices to pills, a lighter and a juice box — were arrested Saturday, the Hernando County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies said the boys opened 18 unlocked cars parked outside 14 houses along Altoona Avenue, Banner Road and Tyringham Street early Saturday.

Deputies said the pair netted almost $1,000 worth of stolen GPS equipment, as well as a handicapped parking tag, six pairs of sunglasses worth about $150 and about $39 in change.

Deputies said they arrested the boys at 6:30 a.m. as the pair broke into two of the cars. The boys said other items they were carrying came from similar vehicle break-ins, but those have not yet been reported, deputies said.

Both minors were booked at the Hernando County Jail on charges of burglary and petty theft. Their names are not being published because of their ages, 16 and 17.

One was released to a parent. Because the other had been recently charged with battery in an unrelated incident, he was moved to the Department of Juvenile Justice's Juvenile Assessment Center in Ocala.
