Three Lewis County teenagers charged with breaking into St. Francis Solanus church
HARRISVILLE — Three Lewis County teenagers are accused of breaking into the St. Francis Solanus church and are responsible for $4,000 in damages and stolen property, according to law enforcement officials.
Sheriff’s deputies said two 17-year-old boys and one 15-year-old boy broke into the St. Francis Solanus church on Maple Street and caused $4,000 in damages and stolen property. Deputies said the teens also twice broke into a residence and stole items, causing $5,000 in damages and stolen property. The burglaries took place in June.
Following an investigation, the teens were taken into custody this week. Their identities have not been released due to their young ages.
One of the 17-year-old and the 15-year-old were charged with two counts each of second-degree burglary, second-degree mischief and petty larceny, and one count of third-degree burglary. The other 17-year-old was charged with one count each of second-degree burglary and petty larceny.
The two older teens were arraigned in court and were released to their parents. They are scheduled to reappear in court.
The younger teen was released on an appearance ticket and his case was turned over to County Probation.
