Suspects in theft of Thomas Davis' McLaren arrested, police say

Deputies tracked the suspects to a home in Charlotte, where they found an SUV with paint matching that of Davis' stolen McLaren sports car.

UNION COUNTY, N.C. — Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with a break-in at former Carolina Panthers star Thomas Davis' home this week. 

According to the Union County Sheriff's Office, the suspects, ages 17 and 15, are in the custody of a juvenile detention center after a Union County deputy and federal agent tracked them to a home on Touchstone Lane in Charlotte. 

In a press release, the sheriff's office said investigators found a dark-colored SUV that had paint matching the McLaren sports car that was stolen and crashed outside Davis' home. Deputies believe that SUV was the intended getaway car during the break-in but was involved in a crash with the stolen McLaren before they could leave.
