PALM COAST, Fla. -- A 17- and 16-year-old girl have been arrested for a string of vehicle burglaries in Palm Coast involving more than $1,600 worth of stolen property.
The two are believed to have broken into at least seven vehicles in a seven-day period in February, according to Flagler County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Debra Johnson.
The break-ins occurred on Russell Drive, Rose Drive, Ruth Drive, Rose Petal Drive and Round Tree Drive, Johnson said.
"These two targeted unlocked vehicles and at least one admitted they were looking for money. They called it 'car shopping,'" said Flagler County Sheriff Donald W. Fleming.
The 16- and 17-year-old girls are charged with six counts of burglary of a vehicle, two counts of grand theft, one count of grand theft of a fire extinguisher and three counts of petit theft.
Both girls have been taken to the Division of Juvenile Justice in Daytona Beach.
Johnson said detectives are still investigating if the two are connected to any additional burglaries in the Palm Coast area.
