KOAT-TV.com - SANTA FE, N.M. — By Alana Grimstad - Santa Fe Police investigators followed a candy trail from the crime scene straight to the suspect's front door.Officials said two teenagers broke a glass pane at E.J. Martinez Elementary School and stole a computer and other electronics. They also took two buckets of candy. Police said as the teens ran away, they must have dropped some of the candy.
Investigators followed that candy trail, which led them through an alley and to one of the teen's homes.
"It's a very serious crime and these boys can be facing very serious charges," said Celina Westervelt, Santa Fe Police.
The teens admitted to the crime and their parents have been cooperating, police said. They were given arrest citations, which means they don't have to go to jail but are facing criminal charges. It will be up to a judge to decide whether they're tried as adults or juveniles.More
