A third person has been arrested in a string of vehicle burglaries in Newark.

Richard Kennan, 17, of Newark was arrested July 2 on nine charges of burglary of a vehicle. Two other Newark residents – Stephen Zackary Bell, 18, and Tanner Lee Scott, 17 – were also arrested last month on multiple charges of burglary of a vehicle.

Wise County Sheriff’s Office investigators had been looking into the case since numerous vehicle burglaries were reported in Newark on or about May 12 through May 15. The burglaries took place in the areas of Sandy Bass Lane, Pettit Drive and Rogers Road. Among the items stolen were a black tool box, a GPS, tools, two nail guns, several backpacks, a Northwest ISD tablet and a pair of blue Silverado car keys.

Investigators are also looking into the possibility that the Newark teens may be involved with similar vehicle burglaries in the Shale Creek area around May 2.
