Investigators used a drone to track down the six suspects. Ocean City police have three drones, OCNJDaily reported. Five officers in the police department's drone unit are certified to fly the devices.

According to police, three teens were from Egg Harbor City, two were from Paulsboro, and one was from Woodbury.

All six have been charged with third-degree possession of stolen property and fourth-degree obstruction.

After being charged, the teens were released to their parents.

It's not the first time Ocean City has dealt with teens accused of breaking the law this year. A minor was charged with attempted murder last week in connection with the stabbing of a 15-year-old male teen on the boardwalk on Saturday, May, 25.
