BELMONT, Mich (WZZM) -- Four teens from Cedar Springs have been turned over to their parents as police investigate their suspected roles in a string of car larcenies since the beginning of June. In total, more than 50 cars have been targeted.
"We noticed a kid kinda playing with his hair around one of the coworkers' vehicles, and then he randomly tried the door. After about 10 seconds, he went over to another door, tried that, and it was also locked," said Belmont's Phillip Wall, an assessing clerk with Plainfield Township. He was chatting with his boss Monday morning when he said they saw two teens pretending to preen themselves in the car windows outside.
"One of his friends came from around the corner, he tried the door next to my boss's car, and then eventually opened her car door," said Wall.
She yelled out the window for the boys to stop while Wall ran after them.
