FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – Three teens have been arrested and charged with stealing four cars from a Hertz Car Rental in Fayetteville and then driving them across state lines.
Tyriek Tripp, 16, Austin Hagee, 18, and Daniel Perez Bollar, 18, face multiple charges for the thefts.
On Nov. 18 at approximately 8:40 a.m., officers with the Fayetteville Police Department responded to Hertz Car Rental, located at 5304 Raeford Road, in reference to a burglary of the business and the theft of four vehicles from the lot.
The initial investigation revealed that suspects broke into the business, took several sets of keys, and then stole the vehicles.
Just a few hours after the thefts, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Police located one of the vehicles on Ocean Boulevard. At that time, they were then made aware of the other three missing vehicles by Fayetteville Police detectives.
Within a couple hours of recovering the first vehicle, Myrtle Beach Police located a second vehicle on the road. They attempted to make a stop, but the driver fled and drove onto a golf course. Tripp was captured almost immediately after leaving the vehicle. Hagee was detained after a short foot pursuit.
Both Tripp and Hagee were charged by South Carolina officers for the crimes they committed in South Carolina. Hagee is being held in the Horry County Detention Center awaiting extradition back to Fayetteville for the burglary and theft of motor vehicle charges.
Fayetteville Police detectives have obtained warrants charging Austin Hagee with four counts of larceny of motor vehicle, one count of breaking and entering, and one count of larceny after breaking and entering.
