NEW ORLEANS — Police have arrested an 18-year-old accused of shooting four people in New Orleans' Central City area and burglarizing dozens of vehicles.
According to court records, Theron Glover faces four counts of aggravated battery in a quadruple shooting and 81 counts of simple burglary - usually associated with car break-ins.
Glover and three juveniles were arrested after the New Orleans Police Department received reports on May 30 of people traveling in a stolen car breaking into vehicles.
Police later tried to stop the stolen car on Chef Menteur Highway when several people jumped out of the vehicle and Glover drove away. Police arrested three people who ran away, who were known juvenile offenders of previous burglaries and car thefts. Glover was arrested the next day without incident.
All four individuals were charged with 12 counts of auto burglary for the May 30 reported incidents. During the investigation, the NOPD said detectives determine Glover and one of the juveniles were responsible for another 15 car break-ins and two car thefts, totaling 27 property crimes in 5 days.
Authorities say they are also investigating Glover's involvement in another 19 incidents including car thefts and burglaries.
The shooting that Glover was booked on happened on May 13 near the corner of Fourth Street and Loyola Avenue in Central City. According to police, a man in a dark-colored sedan pulled up and opened fire on a group of people, wounding four. The victims ranged in age from 33- to 15-years-old. None of them were killed.
