HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Four people were charged in a series of car burglaries at Mary's Magical Place in Veteran's Park.

Hendersonville police said between October 12 - 14, at least four vehicles were broken into. Credit cards were stolen and large amounts were charged at nearby businesses.

Detectives tracked the suspects as they left the state and headed to Florida. Through collaboration with Florida Highway Patrol, the four suspects were stopped in Orange County, Florida and arrested.

Jonmichael Skeete, 27, Scottie Louis, 23, Antrell Thiena, 25, and Brent Sampson, 30, were each booked on burglary, theft, fraud and vandalism charges. Each suspect is from the Fort Launderdale, Florida area.

On Tuesday night, two other Floridians were arrested for similar crimes police are calling "Felony Lane Gang-style" burglaries. The style of this crime is named as such because criminals often target women's purses and wallets, stealing credit cards or checks and withdrawing money from bank accounts.

The suspects, who are also from Fort Lauderdale, targeted multiple cars parked at the Sumner County YMCA.
