SHARE 3 TEENS CAUGHT AFTER CRIME SPREE

Police say three Tremonton teenagers believed to be gang members face 86 charges after embarking on a monthlong two-city crime spree.

Tremonton police Detective Bill Beckman said three boys, ages 14, 15 and 17, are facing charges based on a series of vehicle burglaries, two auto thefts and various acts of vandalism.They allegedly stole six vehicles, tried to steal five others and burglarized more than a dozen cars in both Tremonton and Brigham City over the last month.

The crime spree ended on Dec. 17 when the trio drove into Brigham City, allegedly in a car reported stolen from Tremonton the night before, Gerbich said.

Police received reports that the juveniles drove the vehicle wildly throughout the city, running over people's lawns and mowing down traffic signs.

Two of the juveniles were taken into custody after an officer investigating a call on a suspected drunken motorist spotted the vehicle in which they were driving.

In Brigham City, the teenagers face felony counts of auto theft and assorted other charges totaling 37 counts, and Beckman said they face 49 charges in Tremonton.

The two younger juveniles are in custody, while the 17-year-old continues to elude arrest, both officers said.
