CALEDONIA — Two teens were arrested Thursday for their alleged involvement in a string of recent thefts and vandalism of cars in the southeastern portion of Caledonia.
The incidents began Oct. 29 and escalated this past weekend, with 11 separate crimes committed Friday night and Saturday morning, according to a news release issued by the Caledonia Police Department Thursday evening.
Punctured tires, writing and cuts on vehicle seats and phallic images scratched into exterior paint were reported to police, the release said. If vehicles were left unlocked, the teens went through them and stole items.
On Thursday, the Caledonia Police Department arrested two teens, ages 14 and 15, in connection to the offenses, the release stated. Both teens reportedly admitted to being involved in the acts.
Caledonia Police recovered several firearms related to these offenses, but one is still unaccounted for, the release stated. They also recovered two shotguns taken by the teens which are not related to these incidents.
Police credited the community for providing information used to identify the teens, the release said.
Anyone with information about the incidents can contact Capt. Brian Wall of the Caledonia Police Department at 262-835-4423, ext. 139.
