SECAUCUS, N.J. — Ten French teenagers are accused of burglarizing 12 vehicles while on vacation in New Jersey.

The teens, who range in age from 13 to 17, were arrested in Secaucus early Saturday and were scheduled for court appearances Monday.

Police Capt. Dennis Miller told The Jersey Journal ( ) the teens were staying with adult guardians at a motel. Miller says several vehicles were broken into early Friday and an officer on patrol Saturday saw a large group of juveniles walking between cars with flashlights. Miller says some matched the description from surveillance footage taken the night before.

The 10 are charged with burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary. Three also are charged with theft and one is charged with receiving stolen property.
