Teens are arrested for breaking into vehicles

Thursday, June 22, 2006

SIKESTON -- Two Sikeston youths were arrested by the Sikeston Department of Public Safety early Wednesday morning for breaking into vehicles.

At 11:11 p.m. Tuesday, a resident of Jackson Street called DPS to advise her 14- and 15-year-old foster sons were out past curfew and that her husband was trying to find them.

At about 4:45 a.m. Wednesday, an employee at Houchin's Donuts called DPS after arriving at work and spotting a male inside a fellow employee's vehicle. The suspect ran after being spotted, according to DPS officials. In addition to two of the employees' vehicles being broken into, the phone lines at Houchin's Donuts had been pulled or cut.

Responding DPS officers caught the 15-year-old juvenile reported out past curfew earlier near John's Mexican Villa and placed him in custody.

The second juvenile reported as being out past curfew was arrested at Murray Lane and Warner.

Several vehicles were also reportedly broken into on Ruth Street, according to the DPS, and a bicycle that reportedly had been stolen by the juveniles was recovered near Pro Music on South Main.
