The Christmas celebrations of several Jordan families were interrupted by a crime spree.
On Dec. 24, the Jordan Police Department responded to a series of reports of theft and damage to property. Three area juveniles who admitted to the crimes were arrested and transported to the Carver juvenile detention facility.

Jordan Police Chief Bob Malz said items were stolen from several vehicles, Christmas displays were vandalized, mailboxes were raided, and a number of garages were burglarized.
Malz said the three juveniles were in custody over the holiday.

"I know these are just teenaged kids, but I hope that spending Christmas in lockup and the consequences to follow will have a long-lasting effect on them," Malz said. "I hope that the lesson they learned will stay with them into adulthood."

Malz officers confronted the juveniles with the crimes, and they told the truth and admitted to the acts right away.


"This isn't Much comfort for the victims, but it gives me home for their futures" Malz said.

Malz said one of the suspects told officers that they did ti for kicks and that they got a rush out of committing crimes.

The police department has taken over 30 related reports. Malz said as more residents return from being out of town for the holiday, they are getting more reports.

He said most of the property has been returned.

Malz praised the investigating officers for the quick work in apprehending the suspects and recovering most of the stolen property.

"There are still a couple of unrecovered items out there," Malz said. "We are working on finding them so we can return them to their rightful owners."
