Alleged Thief Nabbed After Leaving Phone:

FORT SMITH, Ark. - A teenager accused of taking part in a string of automobile burglaries in Fort Smith made it easy for police to find him. He left his cell phone behind.

At least eight vehicles were broken into over the weekend in a Fort Smith neighborhood, and several mo-peds also were stolen.

As police combed through one of the burglarized vehicles, officers found a cell phone that did not belong to the vehicle owner. The phone traced back to Brian Lee Scott Elliot, 18, of Fort Smith, Detective Ron Lockhart said.

While investigating Elliot, police developed three other suspects, Jeffery Hass, 18, and two 16-year-old boys, Lockhart said.

A search warrant for the home of one of the suspects, who lives in the same neighborhood where the break-ins took place, turned up goods that were stolen as well as the missing mo-peds.

Police questioned Elliot and the two 16-year-olds Monday afternoon, and all three were arrested on multiple complaints of residential burglary, theft of property over $2,500 and breaking and entering, Lockhart said. Hass was arrested on multiple complaints of residential burglary, theft of property over $2,500 and breaking and entering, Lockhart said.
