Berkeley County sheriff's authorities arrested five people they suspected in a string of thefts from vehicles in the Cane Bay neighborhood.

Tyler Silence, 18 of Summerville, Lawrence Frangos Jr., 17, of Moncks Corner, and William Countee, III., 19, of Moncks Corner, were charged with first-degree burglary.

Two juveniles, whom authorities did not identify, were charged with misprision of a felony and giving false information to police.

Investigators were led to the group when one suspect was seen standing next a car he'd just broken into, according to investigators. That suspect was also in possession of stolen items from the vehicle, officials said.
