Sixteen-year-old charged in burglaries traced to rental car equipped with a GPS tracker.

Police say modern technology installed in a rental car was the undoing of an alleged teenage burglar in Raleigh.

According to arrest warrants, detectives got enough of a description of a suspicious car seen at a rash of break-ins to figure out it was a rented Ford Crown Victoria with a GPS tracking system.

They were then able to trace the car to a couple of other crimes and arrested 16-year-old Quantez Laray Johnson. He faces multiple counts of breaking and entering. Police are trying to determine if he was involved in other cases.

All the burglaries - with the exception of one - occurred inside the Raleigh Beltline between Dec. 19 and 29.

Johnson is no stranger to the law. He's been arrested six times since September and just turned 16 in March.
