Four juveniles alleged to have stolen nine Mitchell vehicles, broken into others
Four juveniles were apprehended Sunday afternoon in connection with nine stolen vehicles and several other break-ins around Mitchell last week.
The two 12-year-old and two 14-year-old boys are alleged to have crashed some of the vehicles into each other, totaling two, Mitchell Det. Lt. Don Everson told The Daily Republic on Wednesday.
The incidents allegedly took place between March 24 and Sunday. Everson said all of the vehicles in question were unlocked or had keys in them when the juveniles accessed them and that the vehicles had been in the central area and other parts of the city.
All nine stolen vehicles have been recovered from a number of locations around Mitchell. Two were discovered in the Davison County Highway Department's parking lot as employees arrived for work one morning.
