Disturbance call leads to arrest of juvenile burglary ring suspects
Lancaster sheriff’s deputies detained the juveniles Tuesday evening at a local gas station at 5th Street East and Avenue K after they were found causing a ruckus, authorities said.
While in custody, deputies realized the trio matched the description of three suspects who allegedly committed a burglary a few hours earlier, according to information released by Lancaster sheriff’s officials. A search of the youngsters, whose identities were not released because they are juveniles, turned up several pieces of jewelry and other items that were reported stolen during the earlier burglary, authorities said.
Investigators have linked some of the items to five recent residential burglaries and believe the three juveniles may be responsible for as many as 10 burglaries in Lancaster, according to information released by the Sheriff’s Department. The investigation is ongoing, authorities said.
