Orem saw a rash of car robberies this week when three teenage boys got bored, ditched school, and allegedly began to break into cars and take property. Ultimately they were reported to have stolen two cars and broke into more than 60 cars. Potential pending charges may include vehicle theft, possession of stolen property, theft from a vehicle, criminal mischief and unlawful use of a credit card
The teens are fortunate in the sense that they are not adults. If the teens were adults they would be facing definite incarceration, potentially for years, whether that would be jail or prison. Because of their age, it’s likely that they will not do any detention time (juvenile jail), but they will end up with stiff fines, community service, restitution, and perhaps therapy.
