Three Kenosha teens stole a car, a money clip and electronics – including a GPS that had the victim’s address programmed as “home” – according to criminal complaints filed today in Racine County Circuit Court.

Jarrel Gordon, Koven Blakey and Roosevelt Busby, all 17, are charged as party to the crimes of armed burglary, operating a motor vehicle without owner’s consent and misdemeanor theft in the Sunday incident.

According to court records, a man called the Mount Pleasant Police at 4:58 a.m. Sunday to report that he was grilling breakfast in his garage, and going back and forth between the grill and the house. His car was parked in the garage, with his keys and a money clip on a counter inside the back door.

While he was grilling he heard a knock on his front door and went to answer it. A young man stood there, saying he had lost his pit bull and asking if it had been seen. While they were speaking, the man heard his back door close, and noticed his keys and money clip were missing. Then, he heard his car start and saw it being driven across his front lawn, striking a fence.

Mount Pleasant police quickly found the vehicle, and tracked it to the 2800 block of Crossridge, where the people inside got out and ran. About 7 a.m., people reported seeing three young men carrying backpacks around a neighborhood.

Police located the teens, who fit the description provided by the man whose car was stolen. They told police they were lost, and officers offered them a ride back to the Kenosha border. During searches of their backpacks prior to getting into the squad, officers found knives, a large amount of loose change, and a GPS that had been stolen from another house. That home’s address was programmed in the GPS device.
