ROCKLAND, Maine — A 16-year-old girl was apprehended Friday afternoon and charged in a string of motor vehicle burglaries.

The Thomaston teen was nabbed following a joint investigation by the Rockland and Thomaston police departments, according to Rockland police Detective Sgt. Chris Young. He said five to eight car burglaries occurred in Rockland and a similar number in neighboring Thomaston on Thursday night into Friday morning.

The girl was under the influence of alcohol, Young said. Some items reported stolen from the motor vehicles were found on the teen.

Items taken included cash, loose change, iPods and CDs, Young said.

The girl’s name was not released because she is a juvenile and she has not yet made a court appearance.
