Summit County crime spree ends in arrest

24 Jul

Two juveniles in Summit County have been arrested after a string of thefts and vehicle break-ins near Breckenridge since February.

Both of the suspects are 15 years old. More suspects may also be involved in more than 20 thefts in recent months.

The suspects are charged with felony theft and are being held in a juvenile detention facility. The class 4 felony carries a possible prison sentence of from two to six years and fines from $2,000 to $500,000.

One of the suspects is also being charged with criminal attempt first-degree criminal trespass, which carries a possible prison sentence of from one to one-and-one-half years and a maximum fine of $100,000.

The thefts involved stolen vehicles, bicycles and vehicle trespasses to steal cash, credit cards and iPods. Most of the thefts have been near the Silver Shekel, Peak 7, and French Creek neighborhoods.

In each case the vehicles were unlocked.

The case is still under investigation.
