Suspects in Custody for Union Break-ins

The Union Police Department has three suspects in custody after taking at least 8 reports of car break-ins over the past few days. Authorities says the two 18 year olds and a 15 year old suspect were taken into custody on Monday after a resident of Michelle Drive saw them stealing from vehicles. Police located a large amount of stolen items in the suspect’s vehicle. Police say all the reports came from owners of vehicles on the south side of Highway 50 in Union. Charges are pending against the suspects while police wait for more victims to come forward to claim stolen property. Police say that the vehicles were not locked and no windows were broken.
