Criminal Trespass 3rd is a B misdemeanor - one step up from a speeding ticket. Why weren't they charged with attempted burglary? Especially since 1 of them possessed burglars tools!!!
"They were discovered after village police investigated a complaint of people with flashlights in the area."
This is a crime now and needs to be investigated? No wonder there are so many people walking the streets in dark clothes without a flashlight.
Hay Kiddies, make sure you have no flashlights when you go trick or treating.
Kudos to the person, or persons, who called in the suspicious activity that caught the teens at the Jell-O factory.
Thumbs up, Raymond.
