Police said juvenile petitions for similar charges are being submitted against an accomplice, but an identity was withheld.

“Detectives were aided by the timely reporting of motor vehicle break-ins by the victims on this evening,” said KDH Police Chief Gary Britt.

The Dare County Narcotics Task Force assisted with the case. The investigation into the dozens of other break-ins reported since this summer in Dare County remains open, including several in which firearms were stolen.
