On April 3rd, the Green Bay Police Department referred charges on nearly a dozen of teens between the ages of 13 to 17 years old, who are suspected of being involved in a rash of reported and attempted auto thefts across the city, especially the west side since the start of the year.
“We believe this criminal action is because of a viral video traced back to the self-named group, ‘Kia Boys’, resulting in accidents caused by reckless driving and property loss,” said Lieutenant Jason Allen, Green Bay Police Department. “We continue to encourage the public to take precautions in deterring theft or damage to their vehicles and alert us if you see something suspicious.”
These investigations are ongoing. No further details will be released at this time.
“We want to thank the community for their help by reporting tips and sharing surveillance videos to the Green Bay Police Department and Crime Stoppers,” added Allen.
Anyone with information related to these cases is encouraged to call Green Bay Police at (920) 448-3200. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime stoppers at (920) 432-STOP (7867). You may also submit a tip online at www.432stop.com, or utilize the “P3 Tips” app for crime tips.
