Two juveniles are facing multiple charges after a Knox City Police Detective connected them to a recent burglary.
According to Knox City Police Chief Harold Smith, shortly before 5 p.m. on Monday, June 11th, city police officers were called to a home in the 100 block of Main Street in reference to the home being burglarized.
Chief Smith reports that when police arrived and spoke with homeowners, they learned that the house is currently being renovated. They were also informed that a television and some jewelry were apparently taken.
Additionally, Chief Smith stated that whoever entered the home allegedly went through and destroyed multiple items, causing thousands of dollars worth of damage. Among other things, they reportedly busted every mirror that hung on the walls, broke out the glass doors on a brand new oven and an old oven, broke a tabletop computer tower, damaged the washer and spray painted and damaged the dryer as well.
During his investigation, Knox Detective Eric Vanderheof located two juveniles allegedly involved in the incident. The subjects face multiple charges including burglary, residential entry, criminal mischief and theft. The investigation is still ongoing at this time.
