    PLANO, Texas (KTVT) — Plano police arrested a 14-year-old in connection to 38 vehicle thefts and/or attempted thefts this month.

The incidents occurred in the areas of Preston Road, W. Park Boulevard, Ohio Drive, and W. Spring Creek Parkway, police said. The vehicles were reportedly mainly Kias and Hyundais.

Police advise owners of eligible models to get a software update, and to use wheel locks or after-market security systems and tracking devices.

The suspect’s identity nor any additional information has been released due to their age. Police, though, are encouraging parents to monitor their kid’s social media activity.
