HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) — Officers in Morganfield say they believe two children are behind a recent string of car prowling crimes Sunday morning.
We’re told 14 cars in total were targeted, with six victims reporting items stolen from their vehicles. The children, aged 11 and 15-years-old, were detained by authorities and are being charged with over 20 different offenses, according to police.
In an effort to catch them, the police department previously shared photos of the crimes on social media, which were captured this morning by a surveillance camera. Officer Hart with the Morganfield Police Department tells us those photos helped lead to the identification and detainment of the two juvenile suspects.
According to police, both children will be appearing in court on a later date. The Morganfield Police Department thanks the public for their comments and input which led to solving this case.
