MOORESVILLE, NC (WSIC) – Mooresville Police Officers were involved in three vehicle chases this week to pursue individuals accused of entering unlocked vehicles in residential neighborhoods.
The Linwood Farms neighborhood was targeted earlier this week. The Koddle Creek and Kistler Farm area was hit early Wednesday followed by the Waterlynn Road area Thursday morning.
Officers responding to the area of Coddle Creek and Kistler Farm Wednesday morning found two suspicious vehicles driving in tandem and became involved in two separate chases when both refused to stop. One vehicle was pursued into Concord where the occupants fled following an accident. The other crashed near Faith Road and Highway 115. Kenneth Davis, an 18-year-old Charlotte resident, is accused of driving the vehicle which had been reported stolen from a Mooresville residence.
Early Thursday morning, a suspicious vehicle call was received from the Waterlynn Road area. Police chased a vehicle to Davidson where stop sticks were used to end the pursuit near exit 30 for I-77. Four individuals have been arrested. Three are juveniles. The fourth is identified as Christopher Moses, an 18-year-old Charlotte resident.
Police say unlocked vehicles are being targeted by out-of-town thieves who will pay to ride along with someone going to a particular area. One vehicle was stolen after it was left keys inside. The driver told police it had been locked.
