Trio Arrested and Charged for Reported "Car Hopping"

Two adults, One Juvenile accused of multiple thefts


CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A reported "car hopping" incident has resulted in charges being filed against two adult males and a juvenile following the trio's arrests on Friday night.  
According to reports, officers observed the three males walking down North 4th Street just before 5 a.m. carrying two bags.  Upon seeing the police cruiser, the juvenile male dropped the bags behind a parked car and continued walking.  Police stopped the subjects and asked what was in the bags... to which the juvenile replied, "it's just trash."  The bags were recovered and reportedly contained multiple stereo accessories, a CB radio and a power sander, as well as some other objects. Police then questioned one of the adult subjects, who said the other adult male had suggested to the other it would be fun to go "car hopping"... in other words stealing from vehicles that were parked on the street.  The suspect told officers the three had entered vehicles from North 4th to North 7th Street that were unlocked.   The two adult males, 18-year-old Devonte Goins and 19-year-old Jerrod Owens, along with the juvenile male, were charged with misdemeanor counts of theft.  The adult males are scheduled to appear in Cambridge Municipal Court on July 8th.  The 13-year-old juvenile, who was already on probation, was taken to the Sargus Juvenile Detention Center.
