Lee County-  Four teenagers are charged with stealing items from at least 10 cars in two Lee County neighbors.

This is what they were taking everything from cell phones to check books, a bong used to smoke marijuana, and construction lights. Sheriff's deputies got a tip about a suspicious car on Paula Court Thursday night. That's where deputies arrested the teens and finding the victims was easy.

"They had put six debit cards in the back seat, they had stuffed them down in the back seats with the person's names on the credit cards and that's how we were able to locate a majority of the victims," said Lt. Lewis Harris, Lee County Sheriff's Office.

Arrested were 18 year old Eric Mash, 17 year old Jamie Doyle and two 16 year olds. Most of the items were stolen from unlocked cars along Laurelwood Court and McDonald Court.
