LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- Three teenagers are under arrest in a string of vehicle burglaries in Lehigh Acres.

Kegan Boyle, 18, and Kelly Wells, 19, each face more than 30 counts of burglary, grand theft and dealing in stolen property.

The break-ins took place in the Sunshine Boulevard area and were stopped when one of the victims caught the thieves rummaging through her car. Family members of the victim chased after and caught one of the suspects, holding him until deputies arrived.

Christian Tezekjian, 19, the alleged lookout, is also charged with one count each of burglary and grand theft.

Detectives say the suspects were taking their stolen property to a couple of acquaintances and served a search warrant for a home on the 3200 block of 72nd Street West.

Authorities discovered stolen property from recent burglaries, including tools and a custom remote control racing boat. Detectives also found 38 grams of cocaine, 130 Xanax pills and 240 grams of marijuana. There was also a small amount of marijuana in a form called “shatter” which is an extremely potent type of THC. Two tactical rifles and $2,000 cash were also seized.

Jacob Kluch, 19, and Samuel Jones, 21, who were inside the home at the time, also face drug possession charges and could face additional charges as the investigation into the stolen property continues.
