Two teens have been arrested on charges that they stole items from a series of unlocked cars in Southeast Roanoke, and police believe there may be more thefts that are still unreported.
Roanoke police spokesman Scott Leamon said Benjamin Memeti, 18, of Roanoke, and Ibrahim Kadrolli, 18, of Roanoke, are facing charges of unlawfully entering a vehicle and petit larceny in relation to a string of thefts that struck at least seven streets in Southeast Roanoke in the early morning hours Wednesday.
Leamon said officers went door-to-door seeking information on the thefts and found Memeti and Kadrolli in the area in possession of property missing from some of the vehicles.
Officers determined items were taken from cars throughout the neighborhood, as far north as the 1600 block of Tazewell Avenue Southeast and as far south as the final streets north of the Roanoke River, Clinton Avenue Southeast and Clay Street Southeast.
Leamon said detectives are encouraging residents of the area to come forward if anything went missing from their vehicles early Wednesday morning.
He said the thefts appeared to strike mostly unlocked vehicles.
Anyone who wants to file a report related to the thefts can call Roanoke police at 853-2400.
