HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — Over the last few days, neighbors say that two teenagers have been breaking into cars in the Liberty Park neighborhood in Houston County.
Video obtained from doorbell cameras shows two teenage suspects walking the street trying to get into cars in the liberty park neighborhood and when they find a car with an unlocked door they are taking whatever they can get their hands on.
“They see cell phones, iPads, air buds, firearms,” Houston County Sheriff’s Corporal, Brandon Barnes said. “Whatever they see that they can get their hands on quick and get out of there or get to the next vehicle.”
According to neighbors, there have been 5 or 6 break-ins to cars.
In this video, a teenager is seen trying to break into the same car that he broke into the night before, but this time there was a different result.
In the break-ins in the Liberty Park neighborhood over the last few days, if the car doors are locked, then the suspect’s at-large move on.
During one of the break-ins, a neighbor says the teenagers took up to $50.
Available footage from the recent break-ins has been turned over to the Houston County Sheriff’s Office, which Corporal Barnes says definitely helps with the investigation and that these teenagers could be facing felony charges.
“Breaking into a vehicle whether it is locked or unlocked is a felony,” Cpl. Barnes said. “If you’ve committed the crime and we are able and prove that you committed that crime. You can be arrested through the juvenile court system.”
The Liberty Park Homeowners Association says that all streets and homes in the neighborhood on monitored and recorded by surveillance cameras.
The suspects appear to be teenage boys and from the videos obtained they are seen wearing shorts and a sweatshirt.
This case is under investigation by Houston County Sheriff’s Office.
