Police in Lake City, Washington are saying that they have reason to believe a group of teenage boys was behind the dramatic, destructive theft of a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, and about a dozen other recent car thefts in the area.
The Camaro Z/28 was discovered stolen on October 7th, and the culprit(s) had driven it straight through the dealership window, causing damage to both the car and the dealership. As Fox News Seattle reports, four days later, officers spotted a group of 15 year-old boys loitering around another car dealership, and one allegedly admitted to having stolen more than 10 cars; it is suspected that one of those may be the recently stolen Z/28.
Police arrested one of the teenage boys loitering at the dealership and later, on October 19th, another teenage boy was arrested for allegedly participating in a car theft from another Lake City dealership. Police believe he may also have participated in the October 7th theft of the $75,000 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.
Both of the arrested teens have since been released back to their parents, but according to police, will most likely be officially charged with felonies for their involvement in the recent string of dealership thefts.
