A Mokena teen was arrested and charged with burglary Friday after a vacant home in the 19800 block of Center Street was broken into, police said.

Officers arrested Derek J. Grossheider, 19, of the 19900 block of Anna Street, after they found credit cards belonging to his mother in the garage of the Center Street home, Mokena Police Cmdr. Dan Rankovich said.
