Boardman teens charged in break-ins

Published: Thu, June 23, 2011 @ 11:30 p.m.


Police have charged two township teens with attempted burglary and two counts each of breaking and entering.

Officers arrested a 16-year-old boy who lives on Erskine Avenue and a 15-year-old boy who lives on Arlene Avenue after neighbors near two vacant homes on Border Avenue reported two male teens and a female look-out were trying to break into the houses, according to reports.

The two teens were arrested around 7:20 p.m. Wednesday on Argyle Avenue east of Erie Street and admitted to trying to force their way into vacant homes at 5731 and 5797 Border Ave. The two were taken to the Martin P. Joyce Juvenile Justice Center.

Criminal Mischief,..

This is such an orchestrated endeavor those youth bear watching. Where not to be impartial here. I'm wondering why the two males were processed as juvenile criminals but the female wasn't.

Sure she was only acting as a lookout but she clearly bore the role as a knowing accomplice. Thus in equal justice that girl showed just as much criminal accord as those young boys.

Fair is fair and she needs to be identified and documented for her role in knowingly partaking in criminal activity,.. fair is fair.

Poor kids . . .. We shouldn't be too harsh on them . They hadn't acquired a gun yet to do holdups and vacant houses don't contain much wealth . They will soon be released from JJC and can resume their budding careers of sharing the wealth .

All the more reason to support our police by passing the levey on August 2nd. Congratulations to our police force in performing their duties well. Now let's hope the court system doesn't give these miscreants a pass.

Certainly, the Boardman police are to be thanked for a job well done, but, I believe that the driving force here were NEIGHBORS who saw suspicious activity and alerted the police. It starts with "we the people" that care about where we live and that costs little money.
