Officers arrest three juvenile offenders for string of thefts including at least three stolen vehicles

The Sheboygan Police Department arrested three juvenile offenders overnight for a string of thefts involving at least three stolen vehicles and numerous other thefts of property from vehicles.
Officers were called to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the 1400-block of Kentucky Avenue shortly before 11 PM on Tuesday night and discovered three Sheboygan juveniles, a 14-year-old female, a 15-year-old male and a 17-year-old male, in a vehicle that had been reported stolen in Green Bay.  All three had active apprehension requests from the Sheboygan County Department of Health and Human Services for violating the terms of their juvenile supervision.
After the three teens were taken into custody, a large amount of suspected stolen property was located in the vehicle, some of which was able to be linked to other thefts that occurred in the city earlier this month.  All three juveniles were referred to the Sheboygan County District Attorney’s Office for a variety of theft charges and are in the custody of the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department.
In each of the cases linked to this group of juveniles, the target of the theft was an unlocked vehicle with either valuables or keys for the vehicle left inside.  Residents are reminded that the easiest way to prevent these types of thefts is to lock vehicles every time they are parked unattended, and to remove the keys and any other property that might be attractive to thieves.  This is the simplest and most effective way to reduce the chance that your car will be stolen or have property taken from it.
The Sheboygan Police Department is continuing to investigate the other property located and expects to refer additional charges for the three juveniles arrested, as well as other associates involved in the thefts.  We ask that if you were the victim of a theft or have information or video of a suspected theft, please call the Sheboygan Police Department at 920-459-3333.
We are also grateful to the residents who reported the vehicle in their neighborhood.  Their attention and willingness to report the suspicious activity was instrumental in not only solving many reported thefts, but also in recovering the vehicle and other property which can be returned to the owners.
