Officers from the Benton Police Department responded to a Hidden Meadows address early Saturday morning in reference to a vehicle theft. Shannon Hills Police Department later located the missing vehicle in their jurisdiction, and four male juvenile suspects ranging in age from 14 to 16 years old were taken into custody in connection with the vehicle theft. With this information, BNPD detectives were able to link the juvenile suspects to several breaking or entering reports in the Gattin Road area. They were transferred to a juvenile detention facility to await formal charges.
Detectives have recovered a few of the stolen items and are following leads in an effort to recover the remaining property. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be forthcoming.
