Teenage girls arrested in Campbell armed burglary

CAMPBELL

A cellphone ping stopped a potential armed-burglary spree by teenage girls from continuing.

Campbell police arrested three girls age 15-16 for armed burglary after they entered a residence on Whipple Avenue at 2 a.m. Friday with a 9 millimeter handgun and stole an iPhone and several pieces of jewelry.

The burglary was “planned, detailed and extracted,” and it was supposed to be the first of many burglaries the girls planned, according to Detective Sgt. John Rusnak. In fact, the girls told police they were willing to show the gun in order to get money, police said.

The girls were caught after a victim of the theft called police reporting her iPhone and jewelry stolen. In total, the items amounted to $750, according to police. The victim called police around 6 p.m. that day and said a cellphone ping led to the address on Sanderson Avenue where her phone was located.

When police arrived at the Sanderson house and asked the grandmother of one of the girls’ if they could search the house, all of the stolen items were found inside, according to police. Also found in the rafters was the handgun, 13 live rounds and two magazines. Police said the gun belonged to the deceased grandfather of one of the girls.

The girls confessed their plan to police later. Two of the girls will be charged with aggravated burglary with a weapon and one of the girls who lied to police during the investigation also will be charged with obstructing justice. Another girl will be charged with receiving stolen property and obstructing justice.

All girls are now in the Mahoning County Juvenile Justice Center.

2am in the morning! Just one question , where were these idiots parents that they were allowed to roam free at 2am. It is the uninvolved parent that lends itself to poor school performance, teenage pregnancy, and criminal behavior. The parents of this new generation of idiots should have charges filed against them for raising this scum.

These youn girls are not responsible for their own actions. They are merely acting out fantasies that tv and music are showing them. Their parents are to blame, Hollywood is to blame, the school system is to blame. These young girls are not at fault whatsoever.

This is one more point about broken homes in America. The youth of America listens to the music and TV. When over half rappers that write songs grow up in well off families.

All I have to say is if you do the crime then you might be doing some time.

WHERES THE CHARGES ON THE PARENT(S) FOR THEIR CHILD COMMITTING A CRIME AND VICTIMS SUEING PARENTS FOR CHILD COMMITTING CRIME. WAKE UP POLICE DEPT!!!!!Sorry about the cap's but please, when are they going to be held accountable for their childs actions!!!! if they have home/tenant insurance maybe they can be sued for something liability wise. Without punishment no results!!! Probably all being supported on our dime I would bet
