5 Juvenile Suspects Arrested In Connection To March Break-In


A month-long investigation has culminated with the arrests of five more teen suspects associated with a burglary attempt in Pueblo West last month.

On the morning of March 12, deputies were called to a home on the 700 block of W. Questa after a 61-year-old woman heard someone breaking into her home. When deputies arrived, they spotted a silver vehicle speeding away and began chasing after it. After losing sight of the car, deputies tracked down the listed address for the vehicle by looking up the license plate, and were waiting for the car when it arrived at the house.

A 15-year-old was arrested as soon as he got out of the vehicle. He was taken to the Pueblo Youth Services on charges of criminal attempt to commit second-degree burglary, criminal mischief, and felony vehicle eluding.

The Sheriff's Office believed the teen had at least one accomplice, and began an investigation into the incident. Eventually, five other suspects emerged. The Sheriff's Office say the five additional suspects are also involved with a number of other burglaries and 17 auto thefts.

The suspects were arrested April 6. Their names are not being released due to their juvenile statuses.

The investigation is still ongoing. The Sheriff's Office has three more arrest warrants yet to be executed.

    Being a Father, I blame society for the way kids are today, when I grew up we respected our Parents and knew that if we messed up we would get a punishment we would remember and not one of my siblings have spent a day in jail. But now days if you spank your child or even take there game system away its abuse! When kids know that there Parents cant do anything then why not break the law? I think that DSS and law enforcement should be the ones who should feel bad about this because there is only so much a Parent can do!

    You people have know idea what you are talking about. You don't know who these kids are, what color they are, or if they have both parents. And who the hell are any of you to judge any of the parents? These teenagers CANNOT be watch 100 percent of the time. When would the parents ever sleep. I am one of the parent and we sealed all our windows. DIDNT HELP!!!!!

          Reading your responses, it is no wonder you have a kid facing felony charges. Violent and defensive much? Maybe the parents of the other kids see YOUR child as "the wrong people". Ever think of that Mr. Great Life?

          You know that I am not the only person on here with this anonymous name. Maybe you should evaluate your life since you choose to throw stones when you don't know all the details!

    If we do as Life O stated, maybe that would embarass the parents to start watching their kids and get others to pay more attention to their own. If they attempted to enter my home, they would have been shot. What then, parents?

      I agree, just don't shoot anyone who is black, unless you are. Then you're good to go.

      They are teenagers not toddlers. You can't have eyes on them all the time but there are plenty of parents who aren't keeping tabs on them and don't care enough to discipline them when they do wrong. Others have caring parents but the kids fall prey to peer pressure. Just don't be too quick to judge the parents unless you know the circumstances.

        How thoughtless of me to not remember the plight of suburban teens - Peer Pressure - GASP! It is enough to turn any good kid into a Felon. Yes, right up there with that other plague of our youth - Boredom. You are so right...Parents watching 15 year olds IS unrealistic...How could I be SO judgemental? Whatever.

    Looks like these 5 are starting young for their life of crime. 17 auto thefts and multiple burglaries. I hope they are taught a really STRONG message in juvie so maybe they can get their heads on straight. Maybe the names and pictures of these juveniles should be made public so we know who to be looking out for.

        Actually, you can't bet on that because that isn't always the case. There are troublemakers from all walks. The teenagers who broke into our trailer in Pueblo West both came from white two-parent families. Neither sets of parents knew that it was going on because they were just "hanging out" with their friend. The parents were just as upset about it as we were.
