FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Three of the five teenagers who are believed to have stolen vehicles from a Fort Lauderdale auto shop early Monday were arrested Tuesday, authorities said.

Fort Lauderdale police said two 15-year-old boys were turned in by family members who saw a report about the car thefts on TV, and a 14-year-old boy was found in the Lauderdale Lakes area with help from the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Police said five vehicles were stolen early Monday from Premium Cars at 1306 N. State Road 7.
