VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Three Valdosta teens are in jail tonight after being arrested Tuesday afternoon for breaking into a car, stealing an ATV and robbing a man at Kohl's last weekend.

18 year old Cedric Thomas faces charges related to the car break, which happened at Family Dollar on Tuesday morning.

17 year old William Gordon faces charges related to the robbery of a man at Kohl's last Saturday.

The third suspect is a 15 year old juvenile, and is facing multiple charges related to these incidents, including theft by entering an automobile and receiving stolen property

"The officers were out doing what I thought was fantastic police work," said Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress. "They were out and they were looking for the 4-wheeler, looking for the offenders. Because they were persistent in what they were doing, they were able to locate the offenders actually on the 4-wheeler."

Childress says the three suspects could still face additional charges. He added that the suspects involved in the robbery at Kohl's could face kidnapping charges because they dragged the victim away from his car in the process of the robbery.
