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.
