Three Havre de Grace boys accused of burglary, theft, vandalism spree

Three Havre de Grace teenagers have been charged with a string of burglaries, thefts and vandalism on Friday and Saturday, city police said Tuesday.

The boys, ages 14 to 16, live in the 100 block of Vancherie Court, police spokeswoman Julie Morgan said.

They are accused of stealing an iPod docking station, ear buds, XBox 360 game system, video games and two bags of potato chips from two homes, in the 100 block of Bloomsbury Avenue and the 100 block of Wilson Street, at 6:06 a.m. and 7:02 a.m. Saturday.

They allegedly gained entry by cutting a screen or lifting a window. Total loss is estimated at less than $1,000.

The boys are also accused of stealing a bicycle and foot pegs from a home in the 700 block of Chesapeake Drive at 8:19 a.m. They allegedly tried to burglarize the home at 7:44 a.m., Morgan said.

On Friday, two of the boys allegedly rode their bikes up Freedom Lane and threw rocks at a van in the 600 block of Franklin Street, damaging the rear driver's side door. When witnesses yelled at them, they fled the area.

An attempt to find them at the time was unsuccessful, according to Morgan.

The boys allegedly vandalized another car in the 600 block of Franklin Street at 4:11 p.m. on Saturday. They are accused of striking the Toyota Corolla about 15 times on the door, causing about $800 worth of damage, Morgan said.
