“We have received numerous tips from the public and we’ve conducted several interviews. We have served search warrants which have resulted in the seizure of evidence. With all of this, we have identified the juveniles who we believe are responsible for the burglary/vandalism. Once we finish processing the evidence we have, we will submit this case to the Box Elder Co Attorney’s Office for charges.”
