CAROLINA BEACH - Carolina Beach Police arrested three people early Sunday morning, July 10th, for first degree burglary, breaking and entering into a vehicle, larceny and possession of a stolen vehicle.
According to Detective Scott Hettinger,  officers responded to a report of breaking and entering of a vehicle at 204 Tennessee Avenue. A neighbor called police to report the crime and was able to describe the suspect and the suspect's vehicle as a dark color Jeep leaving the scene.
Police issued a BOLO (Be on the Lookout) to the New Hanover County Sheriff's Department. A Sheriff's Deputy spotted the vehicle at the intersection of Myrtle Grove Road and Carolina Beach Road in the Monkey Junction area.
