BURLINGTON - Three people were arrested earlier this week in connection with a rash of car break-ins in the Burlington area.

Michael Harrison, 21, of Huntington, W.Va., Bradley Kearns, 21, of Kenova, W.Va., and a 17-year-old boy were each charged with theft. The two adults were taken to the Lawrence County Jail; the juvenile was taken to the Dennis J. Boll Group and Shelter Home.

The arrests came after the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office received a call about suspicious activity in a Burlington neighborhood.
