ATLANTA -

Atlanta police have arrested three teenagers accused of trying to break into a car.

Investigators say the teens pried the lock on a white Dodge Neon on Metropolitan Parkway on Sunday.

The boys fled after officers arrived, according to authorities.

Police eventually caught up to them and took the teens into custody.

Delreco Lovett and Terrence Jones, both 17, and a third suspect, who was not identified because he is a juvenile, are charged with criminal attempt to enter an automobile. Lovett is also charged with theft by receiving stolen property after police said they found him in possession of a stolen cell phone.

Authorities believe they are also responsible for vandalizing a truck in the area.
