4 teens charged with car burglaries on MSU campus

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi State University police have charged four area teenagers with breaking into cars during football games.

MSU Police Department Sgt. Brad Massey said two 17 year olds are being charged as adults.

Massey told The Starkville Daily News that the other two, both 15, are being charged as juvenile offenders.

The four suspects are believed to have been acting together in the burglaries. Police said they targeted cars all over the campus, though it’s not clear how many were robbed.

Most the burglaries involved unlocked vehicles. Stolen items included MP3 players, cellular phones, GPS locators and car stereo equipment.
