Three teenagers are under arrest and another is on the loose following a series of break-ins and thefts in Shrewsbury and Grafton. The thieves targeted at least 20 unlocked cars, stealing cash, cellphones, and GPS systems from the vehicles. They are also accused of stealing two of the cars, WHDH-TV/Channel 7 is reporting.

According to police, the four teenagers are between the ages of 16 and 20 years of age.

"They're probably responsible for quite a bit of car thefts in the area," Lt. Mark DuBois, Shrewsbury Police Department, said.
