(02/11/05) JEFFERS0N ? Jefferson Township police say they have arrested two teens in connection with a string of Lake Hopatcong car break-ins.
According to police, 18-year-old Christopher Unger and an unidentified 15-year-old are responsible for 15 of the 21 reported incidents. Authorities also say two more arrests are on the way. A police spokesperson says investigators got the break they needed when Unger used a stolen credit card from one of the vehicles to pay his cell phone bill.
