Mom turns in teens accused of breaking into Bear River Middle School


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Police say they nabbed two teenagers accused of breaking into a middle school when one boy’s mother turned them in.

KSL-TV in Salt Lake City reports ( that the woman brought the boys to the police station Monday after seeing footage of the Garland burglary on the news.

Surveillance video shows two young men breaking into Bear River Middle School by smashing a skylight with a golf club. Police say they tried to cover their faces with T-shirts to hide their identities on camera, but that that didn’t fool one teen’s mother.

Garland Police Chief Chad Soffe says the pair got away with candy and a toy. He declined to say what charges they may be facing.

Garland is located about 75 miles north of Salt Lake City.
