The Blackfoot Police Department received 19 malicious injury to property complaints this weekend. A band of kids allegedly shot at a bunch of car windows and one house window, doing damage totaling about $3,000. Not to worry, the BPD is on the case.
After the December 2 and 3 shooting spree, patrol officers started asking around town and ended up with four suspects, ages 11 to 14, in custody. Police aren’t giving any details about the minors (because they’re minors) and they have all been released back into their parents’ custody. But don’t think they’re getting away that easy.
The BPD said they are turning the case over to Bingham County Prosecutor’s Office, and will try to get the kids into court for felony malicious injury to property.
