WATERFORD TWP. (WWJ) – Police in Waterford Township have arrested four teenagers in connection with a series of car break-ins at an apartment complex.

Officers responded to the Ashton Pines apartment complex on North Oakland Boulevard just after 2 a.m. on Monday after a citizen reported suspicious subjects were looking into vehicles parked in the carport areas.

When police arrived they arrested four teenagers, including 18-year-old Juan Diaz who is on probation for a May 2011 retail fraud conviction.

Diaz, along with a 16-year-old from Pontiac and a 14- and 16-year-old from Waterford, are believed to have broken into at least five vehicles in the complex.

Police say judging by the amount of stolen property they recovered, the group could be responsible for even more burglaries.

The youths were released to their parents pending the issuance of charges. Diaz was arraigned Tuesday on charges of breaking and entering an automobile and resisting and obstructing a police officer.

Police say Diaz told them he was breaking into vehicle to steal electronics and sell them for between $10 and $40.

    These fools need to stand outside on a busy corner in the dead of winter with signs saying they are thieves, with their names and addresses posted too. If that includes the parents adresses, so be it.

    Released into the custody of their parents? Wouldn’t these be the same people who spent the last 18, 16 and 14 YEARS raising these punks? What sense does that possibly make? Don’t think for a minute these criminals don’t know that they will be treated with kid gloves and get a slap on the wrist for the all misery they have caused to law abiding citizens…THAT is a crime in itself.
