Thomasville, Georgia-- Three teens are facing charges for a string of car thefts in Thomasville.

Police say they cracked the case after finding one of the cars parked in front of an apartment where one of the suspects lives. A 13, 14, and 15 year old have been arrested.

Police say they stole at least four cars since the beginning of the month. They add that the case would be handled differently if adults had been responsible. "There are certain things under Georgia law that we can do with juveniles, like get mug shots, get their fingerprints if they're charged with a felony. However, we cannot disclose their names, and they will go to juvenile court, not superior court," says Thomasville police sergeant, Rachelle Denmark.

Each of the children are charged with theft by taking a motor vehicle. The 13 and 14 year olds are also charged with one count of possessing a firearm by a person under the age of 18.
