Richland County deputies are investigating more than 25 car break-ins at an apartment complex, and say two juveniles have been detained.

Deputies were called around 3 a.m. to a possible car break-in at The Arbors at Windsor Lake Apartments on Windsor Lake Boulevard, which is just off Alpine Road near Interstates 20 and 77, Capt. Maria Yturria said.

Multiple cars at the complex were damaged, Yturria said, and deputies have confirmed that at least 25 vehicles were broken into.

Two juveniles have been detained; however, there was no word on charges against them Thursday morning.

Anyone with information on the break-ins is asked to call Crimestoppers at 888-CRIME-SC. Callers will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
