NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Police arrested two minors and a 23-year-old after being made aware of suspicious behavior in a south Nashville apartment complex parking lot.

The two teenagers, 13 and 14, reportedly had a stolen laptop, a GPS and a radar detector found in their possession. The items were stolen from the Overlook Apartments on Bell Road.

When approached by officers, the 13-year-old said he and the 14-year-old were burglarizing cars at Overlook and other south Nashville apartment complexes, police said.

Witnesses positively identified the teenagers as the persons seen breaking into vehicles.

The 13-year-old told police the other stolen items were in the other teen's bedroom. When police searched the room they found driver's licenses, credit cards and insurance cards. Police also found more stolen GPS units under the 14-year-old's bed.

Police also discovered the two boys had stolen a gun during a burglary that took place on October 2. Police found the pistol in 23-year-old Garland Brooks' possession later that evening. Police said Brooks voluntarily surrendered the gun.

Brooks was originally wanted by police for probation violation, and was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana for resale and unlawful gun possession.

The two teenagers are charged in juvenile court with three counts each of auto burglary.  Additional burglary and theft charges are anticipated.
