BOILING SPRING LAKES, NC (WECT) – Two men face charges in connection to more than 15 vehicle break-ins.

Eliot Watkins and William West are both behind bars after police say the two targeted cars parked near Gastonia and Salisbury roads in the city and took about $6,000 worth of GPSes, cell phones, fishing rods and even a gun from unlocked cars.

A call came into 911 in that area for some suspicious activity and that's when officers eventually saw the pair in a truck.

The suspects turned off their headlights and crashed into a pole. Police arrested them at the scene.
