Salisbury Police charged two local teens with breaking into a number of vehicles at a local restaurant after they were spotted breaking into a vehicle at a South Main Street home.

Anthony Mason Cunningham, 16, of the 400 block of Bringle Ferry Road, was charged with four counts of felony breaking and entering into vehicles, three counts misdemeanor larceny, and felony larceny. Daedrion Tramail Blake, 18, of the 400 block of Heilig Avenue, was charged with four counts of felony breaking and entering and three counts of misdemeanor larceny.

Police responded to El Patron Mexican restaurant Tuesday night after employees said their vehicles — a Toyota Camry, Pontiac Solstice and Ford Taurus — were broken into and items were taken from each of them.

The vehicles were unlocked and had been in the parking lot, located at 1030 Freeland Drive, since the employees began their shifts. The thefts were reported just after 9 p.m.

Earlier in the night, police were called to the 800 block of South Main Street, where someone reported seeing two males taking items from a vehicle. The men rifled through an unlocked Jeep Liberty where $10 was taken.

Some of the items that included a CD player, iPod and headset from the vehicles parked at El Patrol were found on the teens.
