Two teens have been arrested in connection with multiple vehicle thefts in Cherokee County, authorities said Tuesday.

Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office deputies were interviewing victims of the thefts when they noticed a suspicious vehicle leaving the Towne Lake Hills East subdivision off of Towne Lake Parkway, Lt. Jay Baker said. Authorities pulled the vehicle over and determined the teens in the vehicle were their suspects, he said. Eric Mitcham, 18, of Canton, and a 16-year-old juvenile were arrested.

Both face three counts of entering auto.

Mitcham is being held at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center in lieu of $17,100 bond. The juvenile is at the Marietta Youth Detention Center.

Investigators continue to search the surrounding woods for the stolen property.
