LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Police say five boys – including a 7-year-old – have been cited on suspicion of burglary after a neighbor reported seeing the group kick in the door of a nearby apartment in Lincoln.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that two 16-year-olds, two 14-year-olds and the 7-year-old were cited Thursday. Police say one of the 14-year-old boys was sent to the juvenile detention center on an unrelated outstanding warrant. Officer Luke Bonkiewicz says the 7-year-old was apparently acting as a lookout for the other boys.
The apartment’s resident reported that $100 from missing from a safe in his bedroom closet following the break-in.
