The car had been stolen out of Louisville so it was 7th Division detectives that took the report. Detectives soon realized the car theft was not an isolated case.

"By their own admission they stated they probably stole up to 80 cars," LMPD Sgt. Steve Healey said of the three teen suspects, ages 14- 17.

The teens were arrested last week, following a weeks long investigation.

Their crime spree, according to police, had gone on for a year. People were reporting their cars stolen in Louisville, Jeffersontown, Elizabethtown, and Mt. Washington and most of them, were unlocked when taken.

Authorities say 18- year -old Dalton Hayes and 13- year -old Cheyenne Phillips were found sleeping in a stolen car in Panama City Beach. A pair of Kentucky teens accused of a two-week crime spree across the South have been arrested in Florida, authorities said Sunday.

An 18- year -old Kentucky man who was nabbed by police after a nearly two-week, multi-state crime spree with his 13- year -old girlfriend has been charged with a slate of crimes 4. Police say she and her 18- year -old boyfriend were in the state for about a week before attempting to steal a truck.

"It was crime of opportunity. It's quick money. They were also involved in some burglaries where they would break into homes, steal video game systems, fire arms, things of that nature and turn around and sell them on the street," Sgt. Healey said.

Detectives in the 7th Division used forensic evidence, surveillance video and crime mapping data to zero in on their suspects.

Nearly a dozen stolen cars had been dumped in the parking lots of apartment buildings in the area near Crums Lane. That area, in fact, is where police executed a search warrant at a home and arrested the teens.

"If people are stealing cars and dumping them they're usually dumping them a short distance where they're walking to go back home. Usually you're looking for within a one block to two block area," Healey explained.

The teens gave full confessions when arrested and one, according to police, even gave a reason for the crimes: 'for fun.'

According to police the teens admitted to driving around late at night, usually in a stolen car, and looking for another car that was unlocked.

Police are reminding residents to lock to the doors to your car, close your garage, and lock the door leading from the garage to the house. The teens admitted to sometimes going inside homes to get car keys.

So far, the teens have been charged in connection to 18 car thefts. They have admitted to 80, so more charges are expected.

Police also say more arrests are possible.
