EPD: Two Memorial High seniors admit to string of burglaries

Posted: Updated:

Police say the Memorial High School seniors, both 18-year-old males, admitted to a half a dozen vehicle break-ins and thefts on Evansville's eastside.

EPD CPO Eric Krogman says, "The boys actually said they were bored. Charges are pending, but this is still an on going investigation."

Police say reports of stolen items began trickling in the week of May 9.

Last week a man who lives in the neighborhood that's north of Park Plaza Middle School, contacted Krogman telling them his son witnessed the two going through his work van. The man told police he got a look a the license plate.

Krogman says, "Once we ran that plate we were able to speak to one individual we thought was driving it. One thing led to another and we were able to interview a suspect."

Following an interview, police visited the home of the two suspects where they found the stolen items and the kit used to smash the windows.

Police say most of the stolen goods have been returned, but an X Box game and iPod remain in evidence. Police are hoping those who lost these items will come forward.

Police want to remind people to keep valuable out of plain sight and always lock their doors.
