Two teenagers are charged with breaking into more cars, adding to the hundreds of vehicle break-ins police believe they are responsible for across the state.
Boone County prosecutors said LaDarion Hunt and Michael Glasgow broke into multiple cars on the University of Missouri campus. Hunt and Glasgow are each charged with five felony counts of property damage.
MUPD officers found windows broken out of four cars and items stolen from several other vehicles, according to court documents. It happened in an east campus parking lot in October.
An officer saw the two teens break into about six cars and chased them on foot, the court documents show. But the teens got away. Days later after the teens were arrested, Glasgow told investigators he and Hunt checked car door handles and trunk lids in the MU parking lot and stole some items.
Authorities suspect Hunt, Glasgow and Sarah Gibb are responsible for 300 to 400 car break-ins across Mid-Missouri. The three have already been charged for a string of thefts in Centralia and Fulton. Moberly police also suspected the teens of 50 vehicle break-ins, but no charges have been filed yet.
Hunt and Glasgow are currently being held in the Boone County Jail.
