South Lake Tahoe Police have arrested three 18-year-old men accused of stealing at least three vehicles and burglarizing another this week.

Officers say Elija Kidwell, Brian Barnes and Sean Murphy all of Placerville are involved in the theft of three vehicles between Monday evening and Tuesday morning. They're also suspected of stealing items from inside other vehicles, all of which were unlocked.

The trio were booked into the El Dorado County Jail on felony charges of auto theft, possession of stolen property and conspiracy.

Police say two of the vehicles are still missing - a 1996 Subaru Legacy wagon and a 1991 Jeep Cherokee - and believe other vehicles may have been burglarized and not yet reported.
