Three Lexington-area teenagers face charges in connection with the thefts of electronic location equipment and cell telephones from four vehicles in the Palmetto Hall neighborhood on the north edge of town, police said.
Trevor Ochocki and Edward Adams Jr., both 17, and a 16-year-old juvenile each face four counts of breaking into vehicles, police said. Ochocki also is charged with possession of stolen property.
The three were in a vehicle stopped by officers early Sunday carrying several items that homeowners reported stolen. Officers came to the neighborhood to investigate reports of individuals trying to enter locked cars, police said.
