WOODSTOCK — Two Cherokee County teens were arrested Tuesday morning following multiple reports from Woodstock residents saying their cars had been broken into.

Eric Mitcham, 18, of Canton, and a 16-year-old male from Woodstock were charged with entering an auto after Cherokee County Sheriff’s deputies found them driving away from the Town Lake Hills East subdivision, where the thefts had occurred, said Lt. Jay Baker, spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office.

While interviewing the victims of the thefts, Baker said deputies spotted a “suspicious vehicle” pulling out of the subdivision.

“Deputies pulled the vehicle over and determined that the two males inside were the entering-auto suspects,” Baker said.

Investigators believe the suspects hid stolen property from the cars in the woods before they were arrested, Baker said, adding the woods were being searched.

Mitcham was charged with three counts of entering auto and is in custody at the Cherokee Adult Detention Center on $17,100 bond. The 16-year-old, whose name was not released because of his age, faces the same three charges and was sent to Marietta Regional Youth Detention Center, Baker said.
