SALISBURY - Police arrested four teenagers who authorities said were carrying stolen electronics from a home on South Jackson Street.
Anthony Demonte Hill, 16, of New Street, and Matthew Dasean Lennon, 16, of South Church Street were charged with felony breaking and entering and felony larceny. Two 15-year-olds were also taken into custody.
Salisbury Police Officer Jennifer Moreau stopped the group about 5:30 p.m. Monday near the intersection of South Jackson Street and West Harrison Street.
Moreau said in the report the teens were in front of a home near the 900-block of South Jackson Street which had been vandalized recently.
When Moreau, a Police Interdiction Team member, got out of her patrol car with the youths, she said one of them dropped a flat black object on the ground.
It was later found to be a Toshiba touch screen tablet. The device also had the name of a neighbor on it.
Moreau also found a Nook e-reader, laptop and two cell phones in the possession of the other teens.
The neighbor was contacted and confirmed the breaking and entering. The property was returned.
Lennon and Hill were each placed under a $25,000 bond. They remained in jail Tuesday evening.
The 15-year-olds were given juvenile referrals for juvenile court.
Similar charges are expected to be filed for the juveniles.
