Six teenagers have been arrested in connection to car break-ins and two other burglaries in Valley Center.
The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s office said deputies were called to the 8100 block of N. Buena Vista Dr. around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. Authorities said a homeowner confronted a suspect on his property, but the suspect ran away. The homeowner told officers he saw a vehicle leave the area a short time later.
Deputies later stopped a car matching the description. Officials said six teenagers, one 17-year-old and five 16-year-olds were arrested and booked on charges of burglary and theft.
The stolen property was valued at $700. The items were recovered to various owners.
The case will be handed over to the district attorney’s office for review.
