Price City Police have arrested two juveniles for their involvement in an Aug. 4 burglary at Decker Bicycle in Price.

According to Capt. Bill Barnes, two males entered the Main Street business at approximately 2 a.m. from the front wearing hooded sweatshirts drawn tight over their faces. The suspects damaged the business while gaining entry, and stole an undisclosed amount of money and retail items.

After selecting their stolen goods, the suspects attempted to flee through the alley behind Main Street but were confronted near the rear exit, said Barnes. The juveniles then doubled back through the store and left through the front.

City detectives immediately began investigating but did not get the break they needed until released security footage generated several anonymous tips.

On Aug. 22 the crime was solved, said Barnes, as Price Police referred two 14-year-old males to Seventh District Juvenile Court where they could face charges including third degree felony business burglary.

According to Barnes, the juveniles have been cooperative with detectives, acknowledging their involvement in the incident.

In addition to their cooperation, the suspects have returned two Pinnacle High School basketball jerseys taken during the robbery.

In their press release, the Price department expressed thanks to those who spread the footage and to those who came forward with the information which broke the case.

"Cooperation by local citizens is directly responsible for solving this crime," Barnes said.
