LEVEL PLAINS, Ala. (WDHN) — Just after two p.m. Wednesday afternoon, two juveniles were arrested for breaking into several vehicles in Level Plains.
A home surveillance camera reportedly caught the teens in the act of stealing property from the vehicles.
Level Plains Police Chief John “Boy” Summers says a teacher identified the 16 and 17-year-old minors in the surveillance footage which appeared on the police department’s Facebook page.
Wednesday, the suspects were arrested at a house on Dale County Road 109 in Level Plains. Since they’re minors, the teenagers’ names have not been released.
Chief Summers says the suspects found vehicles that were unlocked. They allegedly stole money, electronic devices, and anything they could get their hands on.
The chief says they received a great deal of assistance from Daleville and the Midland City Police Departments, along with the Dale County Sheriff’s Office.
“I have been chief since November and this is probably the proudest moment, not only for me but the department, and the guys because I challenged them to get this done, and everybody worked to get it done,” Summers said. “And in return, we made Level Plains safer, and we want to move forward and do that.”
Chief Summers says the two suspects are also being questioned about vehicle break-ins in several surrounding cities including Enterprise, Headland, and Daleville.
