Two 14-year-old juveniles were arrested on Sunday, February 26th, for burglarizing three Red Boiling Springs businesses earlier that morning.
According to Red Boiling Spring Chief of Police Terry Tuck, the two suspects gained entry through the front door of San Marcos Mexican Restaurant and took a cash register, which contained a total of $18.
The second break-in occurred at Big Ed’s Barbecue on Whitley Hollow Road, where entry was gained through a window and items and cash valued at a total of $400 were stolen from the restaurant.
During their third and final break-in, the suspects inflicted over $1,000 in damage to the Called Out Ministries building and many items being housed inside the Main Street location.
“Windows were broken, the walls were spray painted and damage was done to a tow motor, pool table and other various items,” said Chief Tuck.
Red Boiling Springs Officer Jimmy Morgan was writing up the reports from the three burglaries on Sunday when he received a report from a Called Out Ministries church member that two juveniles were seen riding bicycles that were stolen from the church.
Officer Morgan located the juveniles and charged each of them with two counts of vandalism, three counts of theft and three counts of burglary. They are scheduled to appear in Juvenile Court on March 8th.
