A public tip helped Thomasville police arrest a pair of teenagers in connection to a string of break-ins dating back to last year.
According to a press release from Thomasville Police Department, Andrew Scott Freeman, 19, of 505 Duke St., and Brian Cody King, 18, of 428 Quaker Drive in Asheboro, face multiple breaking and entering charges following their arrest on Thursday morning. Scott and King were charged with four counts of felony breaking and entering, four counts of felony larceny, five counts of felony breaking and entering into a motor vehicle, four counts of misdemeanor larceny and one count of felony larceny of a motor vehicle.
"A citizen provided a tip after viewing the surveillance video of one of the break-ins," Detective Chet Jarrell said. "Once the suspects were identified, we were able to gather additional information that linked Freeman and King to the break-ins fating back to August, 2012."
The teens are charged in connection to break-ins at Liberty Drive Grill on Aug, 26, 2012, and April 14, 2013, a motor vehicle on Lexington Avenue (March 30), a motor vehicle and larceny on Dixon Circle (April 9), the Tom A. Finch YMCA (April 9), three vehicles on May 21, including two on Lexington Avenue and one on West Guilford Street, and Rumfelt's Collectibles on Fisher Ferry Street (June 10).  
Freeman and Scott were placed in the Davidson County Jail and issued $10,000 secured bonds. They are scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 25.
