3 minors arrested for string of car break-ins in University Park neighborhood

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Three juveniles were arrested on Saturday morning in connection to a string of car break-ins in the University Park neighborhood. 

Police responded to the 4800 block of Diablo Valley Court at around 4:20 a.m. after getting a call from a person who had caught the juveniles stealing from his vehicle. 

The trio reportedly got into the victim's unlocked vehicle and stole several items including a handgun. 

After further investigation, officers were able to link the juveniles to three other vehicle thefts, two of which hadn't yet been reported.  

Two of the juveniles were booked into Spring Creek and one juvenile was served and released to a parent.

If any other residents in the University Park neighborhood have noticed items that may have been taken out of their vehicle sometime Friday night or Saturday morning, they are asked to call 444-7000 and reference this case by the number 17121874.
