WARNER ROBINS -- Three teenagers are accused of breaking into multiple vehicles during a five-hour spree Jan. 24 in Houston County, authorities said.
Charles Edward Manire IV, 18, of Warner Robins, was being held Tuesday in the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center on one count of theft by receiving stolen property and one count of theft by receiving auto. He was arrested last week in the stolen vehicle, said Houston County sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Middlebrooks.
Because the other teenagers are under the age of 17, their identities are shielded under state law. One is a 15-year-old girl and the other is a 16-year-old boy, Middlebrooks said.
Manire confessed to the multiple break-ins, Middlebrooks said. Also, items stolen from at least one of the break-ins was found in the stolen vehicle, Middlebrooks said.
Shared information among Bibb, Houston, Warner Robins and Perry law enforcement agencies led to the three teens being identified as responsible for the auto break-ins.
Anyone with information related to the auto break-ins is asked to contact Middlebrooks at (478) 542-2085 or Warner Robins police Detective Shane Mann (478) 929-1170.
