BECKLEY -

One Beckley juvenile just cannot stay away from crime.

A 16 year old male recently admitted to breaking and entering into two homes and is suspected of another. But this is not his first run-in with the law.

Beckley Detective Pannell told 59 News these crimes were committed when he was on a 2 week break at home in between his time at two juvenile detention facilities.

"I'm not saying the law enforcement isn't doing his job, I'm just saying these criminals need to be put to justice before it gets out of hand," said neighbor Adam Easter.

It began on Sunday morning when he broke into an elderly female's home through her basement window. She woke up as he was emptying her purse and then stole cash and checks from her before running out. The suspect admitted to that and a break in yesterday in which he only attempted, with no luck, to break in. The homeowner later that day noticed the basement window had been tampered with.

He admitted to both of those, then on Tuesday he's suspected of breaking into a home on the same street but a block over, but he has not admitted to that one.

In this third one, the victim woke up to notice expensive jewelry stolen from their bedroom drawer. Pannell doesn't believe there to be a connection between the suspect and the victims. This is what neighbors had to say about their street.

"It's pretty common for a teenager to be out here breaking and entering. It does go on," Easter said.

"I've lived here 45 years and never had any trouble. I have the best neighborhood and the best neighbors. We love each other," neighbor Raymond Osborne said.

Do you think that they target different people?

"They target people who are old and work and who don't frequent there house. They stake out their house to break in to," said Easter.

Is it shocking?

"Yes break ins are shocking," answered Osborne.

Does it make you nervous to live on this street now?

"No, I love it on this street," Osborne replied.
