Two Winder teens were arrested last week after breaking into cars and looking in the windows of homes in the city’s Bellingrath subdivision off Hwy. 211.
The pair was caught with some stolen items, and police later discovered other items in the car they were using.
Rene Landeros, 18, of 860 Kendall Park Dr., and Taylor Scott Love, 17, of 286 Partridge Trail were both charged with loitering, entering an auto or other motor vehicle with the intent to commit a theft and burglary.
The incident unfolded at about 1 a.m. March 23, when someone called the Winder Police Department to report someone looking into the windows of homes in the subdivision, said Capt. Dennis Dorsey, commander of the Uniform Patrol Division. A Winder officer drove to Natchez Circle and found the pair on foot. One was wearing all black clothing and black gloves. The other was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.
Police found the teens’ car parked on the side of a road about a half-mile away. Inside were “more cell phones, CDs, a bone-handled knife, a black iPod and several sets of keys to vehicles,” he said. The car apparently had been taken without permission from Love’ home.
