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.

Police are still looking for a fifth teenage suspect.
