The youth has been released to his parents pending a court date in youth court.

At least one of the cars burglarized had the window open enough for an arm to fit through, and the purse was in sight. Mullins said.

Drivers should keep their cars locked, keep valuables out of sight and keep their windows rolled up when the cars are vacant, he said.
