EPD: Three arrested for east side vehicle thefts | Crime
Evansville Police have made three arrests in connection with multiple thefts from vehicles on the east side.
Officers say they received a tip early Sunday morning from a witness who said he saw someone remove speakers from a vehicle in the 8100 block of Lincoln Ave. The person then placed the speakers inside a dumpster and walked away. The witness thought it was unusual and called 911.
Officers responded to the area and were told by a second witness that he had seen 18-year-old Ryan Kennedy with two other people and pointed out where he had last seen them. The three were located and interviewed.
During the investigation, police say all three were linked to multiple thefts from vehicles that occurred in the area over several days.
Police charged Kennedy and 18 year old Shaquille Cunningham with Theft from a Motor Vehicle. The third suspect is a 16-year-old and he was placed at the Youth Care Center on theft charges.
Police are working to return recovered items to the owners.
