A recent string of burglaries and acts of vandalism in Paonia's downtown business core has been solved.

According to Paonia Police Department Sergeant Neil Ferguson, the suspects are facing criminal charges for the incidences. Because they are all juveniles, their names are being withheld.

The incidents date back to May 23 when windows were broken out at two businesses located in the 200 block of Grand Avenue during the early morning hours. In addition, a rash of four burglaries occurred over the weekend of July 9-10.

A subsequent break-in at another downtown business about two weeks later involving different suspects was also solved, said Sergeant Ferguson.

Suspects were identified through a combination of community members coming forward and business owners providing valuable information to the department, said Ferguson. As a result, most of the money and stolen items were recovered and returned to the business owners.

While some serious crimes have been committed in recent years, this is the first string of crimes in Paonia in the last five or six years, said Ferguson. "I'm glad we nipped it in the bud."
