A Pekin teenager, picked up following a string of recent car burglaries, was charged Thursday with one of the burglaries. 18 year old Gabriel Thompson was arrested in the 1200 block of Florence Tuesday, one day after Pekin Police warned residents to be diligent about locking their cars. Thompson's bond was set at ten thousand dollars. The case will most likely be heard by a grand jury.
