York County authorities made quick arrests after an overnight vehicle break-in in Fort Mill.
Four teenagers were charged overnight with breaking into cars in Fort Mill. Nicholas Vasco, 18, Samuel Thayer Phillips, 18, and two 17-year-old juveniles were arrested after a felony stop on their vehicle. They are from Charlotte, authorities said.
The owner of a 2013 Dodge Ram pickup truck told deputies that several teenagers had broken into his vehicle on Danson Drive. He said they fled in a black Nissan X-Terra with a N.C. tag after being confronted, a sheriff’s report says.
While responding to a call, authorities spotted the suspect vehicle at Heritage Boulevard and Heritage Parkway, where they found the four teens.
“All four stated they knew someone was breaking into cars; however, none admitted to the offense,” a sheriff’s report says.
The victim’s 9mm magazine, miscellaneous keys, headphones and other items were recovered and returned to the owner.
Vasco and Phillips were transported to the county jail while the juveniles were issued summonses.
Vasco and Phillips were charged with two counts each of breaking into a motor vehicle, receiving stolen goods and criminal conspiracy. Vasco was also charged with possession of controlled substance. Both were being held without bond.
