Via WESH reports:
A mother and her 15-year-old son were arrested Thursday after Volusia County Sheriff’s Office deputies said the pair broke into 40 cars and businesses in various local businesses.
Neighbors told WESH 2’s Claire Metz that the Prilutskaya family is infamous for wreaking havoc on St. Augustine Road, where the family lives.
Roger Johnson, a neighbor, said he walked out on his porch and clapped as police led 52-year-old Lyudmila Prilutskaya and her son out of their home in handcuffs.
WESH 2 is not naming the son, but Prilutskaya is facing charges of burglary, grand theft, child neglect and contributing to delinquency.
Deputies said the pair burglarized dozens of vehicles in the Spruce Creek Fly-in community and surrounding cities.
The son would drive and burglarize while the mother gave her approval on various stolen goods.
The family that steals together stays together.
