PALM BAY, Fla. – Five Palm Bay teens were arrested on burglary-related charges after police followed a trail of candy wrappers from the crime scene back to the house of one of teens.
Officers responded to a break-in Tuesday afternoon and found that the inside of the home had been vandalized. An officer then followed a trail of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups packages in the backyard. The officer noticed another wrapper on the front porch of a house near the victim's house.
Officers found several juveniles at the other house. Police say the teens confessed to the burglary and informed officers that the stolen property was in the attic.
Three of the teens face armed burglary charges, and two others face charges of resisting arrest without violence and tampering with evidence.
