Two teens arrested in connection to Hampton cell phone, residential burglaries

HAMPTON, Va. - The Hampton Police Division has arrested two teens in connection to multiple residential and commercial burglaries Thursday.

A 16-year-old Hampton boy and a 16-year-old Hampton girl were arrested for the burglaries that took place between November 2017 and March 2018.

The boy has been charged with 12 counts of Burglary, 11 counts of Possession of Burglary Tools, 10 counts of Conspiracy to Commit Burglary and seven counts of Grand Larceny. The girl was charged with four counts of Burglary, four counts of Conspiracy to Commit Burglary and one count of Grand Larceny.

Police say on one of the most recent break-ins at Metro PCS on East Pembroke Avenue, the suspects forced entry into the business around 3 a.m. on March 16. They say the suspects took cell phone accessories and an undisclosed amount of cash.

"They came and grabbed a couple of things and left. It was really quick. It kind of happened really late at night. Thank God no one was in the store when it happened," says Marquise Harrison, Metro PCS employee.
