ROCKVILLE, Md. (WMAR) — Four Washington D.C. men have been arrested in connection to a rash of car thefts in Montgomery County.

Police have charged 20-year-old's Khristian Markeel Champ and Duan Jones along with Alaunte Scott,18, and 19-year-old Christopher Taylor.

Between May and August, investigators believe the four worked together to steal around 30 vehicles and commit 100 additional property thefts from other cars.

Metropolitan Police officers found several of the stolen cars in Washington D.C. and had found that they were reported stolen out of Montgomery County.

Further investigation led Montgomery County Police detectives to the four suspects.

Taylor and Champ are currently out of jail on $7,500.00 bail, while Jones was released on $2,500.00. Scott was served a criminal summons.

Right now, police have only charged Jones with stealing property from vehicles, and the other three for auto theft and stealing from vehicles.
