A 16 year old Marathon youth is in jail today. He was charged in connection with multiple vehicle burglaries which took place in the Marathon area late last week.
The 16 year old faces three counts of felony burglary and one count of theft. An expensive pair of Costa sunglasses, stolen from one of the vehicles, was recovered from the suspect and will be returned to the owner. More charges are pending against him and more arrests of additional suspects are expected.
Detectives and deputies took reports of 18 vehicles burglarized in various areas of Marathon between Wednesday morning and Friday morning. A surveillance video of the suspects released to the public netted numerous tips which helped detectives to identify the suspects.
