Three local juveniles accused of breaking into a Benton business earlier this month have been arrested.
According to a news release from the Benton Police Department, investigators located stolen property and gathered sufficient evidence to charge the three minors, who have been turned over to juvenile authorities. Their arrest comes two weeks after a Feb. 9 burglary report by Ambient Minerals, located at 705 Bird St. The proprietor there told police that perpetrators had gained entry into the business and that â€śsome items had been stolen.â€ť
