Burglary charges slated for juveniles


The Hayden Police Dep--artment will recommend burglary and theft charges for three juveniles suspected of breaking into a home in July.

Police suspect the three boys, ages 13 and 14, worked together in the incident, which occurred July 7 in the 500 block of East Washington Avenue.

A $300 digital camera and a credit card were taken. Those items were not recovered.

The boys' names cannot be released because they are juveniles.

One of the boys confessed to being a "lookout," and another admitted to removing a window screen and entering the home to take the items, said Hayden police Officer Darin Falk, who investigated the case.

The two said another boy also helped keep watch during the burglary. That boy has not confessed.

A neighbor who observed the boys near the home provided information to police.

One of the suspected boys has had prior contact with police, Falk said.

Another burglary and theft was reported July 8. In that case, someone apparently entered a home in Meadow Village through a back window and took a credit card.

The boys have not confessed to that burglary, and police have not been able to prove the incidents were connected, he said.

Falk plans to file a report with the District Attorney's Office and recommend the boys be charged with second-degree burglary and theft.
