Two juveniles and two adults face charges later this week in relation to burglaries in the community that go back to last August.

The adults face felony charges. The juveniles are old enough that they could also be charged as adults, but that is a decision for Swift County Attorney Robin Finke, Chief Ian Hodge said in an interview Monday.  

While patrolling in Benson around 1:30 the night of May 30, Officer Ben Badowich ran into two people who he stopped to talk with. At the time, they had burglary tools in their possession, Hodge said. That led to a search of both their vehicles. Discussions with the two led to a small amount of information that officers then used to pursue their investigation of a series of burglaries of vehicles and garages in recent months.

Later Badowich again interviewed one of the two and was given “a large amount of information,” Hodge said. That led to two other people who were allegedly involved in the burglaries as well as the searches of the residences of the four individuals.

Searches of their residences and vehicles led to the recovery of stolen cell phones, flashlights, CDs, movies, knives, cash, watches, jewelry, headphones and other items.
