Group Of Boys Arrested For Burglaries At Businesses

A group of five juveniles faces some serious charges after a series of burglaries as businesses around Richmond.

Police say the boys broke into T. Bombadil's on May 27th and again on July 14th. The first time, they took bottles of liquor from the scene. During the second burglary, they got away with a computer.

On July 16th, police arrested a 16-year-old and 13-year-old in connection with the July burglary. Police say the 13-year-old suspect was also involved in the May burglary, along with three other boys.

Tow of those boys, a 12-year-old and another 13-year-old, were brought in for questioning. All four boys now face a charge of 3rd Degree Burglary.

Police say the same boys are responsible for several break-ins at Tri County Fertilizer on Elm Street back in June. Police say during those burglaries, the young suspects did $48,000 in damage.

The same four males were charged for 3rd Degree Burglary and 1st Degree Criminal Mischief in connection with the crimes at Tri-County Fertilizer.

Three of the boys were taken to the Fayette County Juvenile Detention Center while the fourth was released to his parents.

Police are still looking for a fifth teenage suspect.

    Note for Taylor in Richmond: How can you say two of these boys would give for anyone? Seems to me they'd rather take from anyone. I still say post their names: a little humiliation goes a long way.

    I agree with Joey - the names should be released or at least the parent(s) names. Sounds like the parents need to be charged as well.

    Throwem in foster homes and have their parents castrated. Problems solved.

    I AGREE WITH JOEY, POST THESE IDIOTS NAMES. EVERYONE IN TOWN SHOULD KNOW THE NAMES OF THE YOUTH. PUT THEM TO WORK AT THESE AREA BUSINESSES, TO PAY FOR THE DAMAGES. THIS WOULD TEACH THEM A GREAT LESSON.

    I think the parents should have to pay for the damage those boys done to the businesses and the boys should have to do time in juvenile detention or jail. Kids need to learn that they can't get by with this stuff because of their age. Usually adults are the ones who put them up to it because of less severe punishment. We have to put a stop to this madness before it eats at the wellbeing of our communities.

    Well i think these juveniles should not have done it.But i do know almost ever one of them besides the one that was 16.The 13 year old was just getting out of all of his problems.But i am sure they will be gone for a whill.I still love the one thats 13 i hope he gets out of the trouble.

    You all know nothing about there lives, i know two of the boys, & they'd give for anyone. You all don't need to be judging teenages..you're right..there mothers might not have took care of them right ; or there dad's might have left them! But Whoever you all are have no right judging them! They can't help how they were raised.

    I bet these boys were raised by "Mommie" the single parent OR by both the biological mother and father who are clueless as to what the term "Parent" means. Too late to shove the boot up the rear end now...their criminals and repeat at that.

    I still say you place the names of juveniles in the media. If we know who they are, our own children can be protected from associating with these bunch of thugs.

    A group of boys...sounds like a gang to me. Just what we need in Richmond...maybe if we get a Lextran stop these boys can do their robbing in Lexington.
