Arrests made in Coalville crime spree

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office has arrested three suspected burglars in connection with a recent crime spree in Coalville. The suspects are juveniles from the North Summit area who may be behind a string of crimes in Coalville that began in May.

They are blamed for burglarizing businesses, homes and automobiles in May and June, according to Detective Ron Bridge, a spokesman for the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

On June 3, the suspects broke in and stole money from Denise’s Home Plate at 49 N. Main Street, Bridge said.

The suspects stole a computer from the North Summit School District, and iPods, money and stereo equipment from several vehicles, he added.

Bridge said they also vandalized several mailboxes in the North Summit area.

The crimes appeared to be connected, he said.

"As the investigation evolved, three juvenile suspects were located and confessed to the crimes," Bridge said in a prepared statement.

The suspects were referred to 3rd District Juvenile Court on numerous charges related to burglary and vandalism, Bridge said.

"It was excellent teamwork between the patrol division and the detective division to round up these suspects and receive the appropriate information needed to file charges," he added.

The names of juvenile suspects are usually not published in The Park Record. The authorities did not release their ages.

Restitution in the case could reach $15,000, Bridge said.
