Car Break-In Follow Up: Suspects Rummaged Through More Than 10 Cars

The information in this report is from the Twinsburg Police. An arrest does not mean a conviction.

The suspects in a string of car break-ins in Twinsburg on Dec. 7 told police that they had rummaged through more than 10 unlocked cars parked in driveways, according to the full police report.

Three men -- Joshua Elliott, 21, of Warrensville Heights; Jeremiah Elliott, 20, of Shaker Heights; and Jordan Houston, 19, of Richmond Heights -- have been charged with felony theft and receiving stolen property. Houston was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon, a misdemeanor, after police found a pair of nunchucks in his car.

While two of the suspects did not cooperate with officers, one of the suspects told police that they had parked their on Pam Court and began walking the surrounding neighborhoods searching for unlocked cars.

He told police that they came to Twinsburg because residents have money, according to the report.

Residents on Jason Court, Pam Court and Neille Lane reported having their cars rummaged through, with some of the residents having items stolen, according to the report.

Items taken from the cars included money, an Apple laptop, a Visa gift card, two iPods, two backpacks, numerous cell phone chargers and packs of chewing gum, according to the report.

A big thank you to the resident who called the police in order to alert them and stop these criminals. By your actions, justice will be served for you and your neighbors.

Why do people continue to leave their cars unlocked?

Why should residents have to lock their cars Cindy? Just give these guys some "COEXIST" and "PEACE" bumperstickers and maybe they will just become law-abiding citizens.
