Teens accused of ransacking 6 vehicles in North Ft. Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Investigators may have solved a string of car break ins in Lee County.

On Wednesday Cape Coral Police arrested 3 teens.  The trio drew an officers attention because they were riding without lights on their bikes.

One of the teens was in possession of "suspicious items" according to a statement from Cape Coral police.

6 cars in two subdivisions in the Moody Lakes subdivision were broken into on the evening of November 30th.
Cash, an expesnive camera, and a 9mm Glock were among the items stolen.

"It's frustrating to know that your neighbors are being broken into, you know people you know, and they are working their way up to your house," said David Webster.

Some of the burglaries occured near his home.  The vehicles broken into were not locked or parked in a garage.

"Last night was the first night I left it out," said Bill Kamen.  "I understand this is where all the problems happened last night, so I was lucky my car wasn't vandalized."

Webster is hoping the suspects are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

"I would love to see them face the kind of hardship they caused people."

The Lee County Sheriff's Office has increased patrols in the neighborhood since the break-ins occured.
