JASPER — Various counts of burglary, criminal mischief and theft being filed against six juveniles arrested Tuesday by the Jasper Police Department relate to multiple burglaries reported in the city in the last six months.

Police expect to make additional arrests today.

Jasper officers were called Tuesday to the former Jasper Wood Products building at 1316 Vine St. to investigate a burglary that had occurred on Labor Day. The building, owned by Paul Voegerl Sr., had been the location of an Aug. 7 or 8 break-in that found two vehicles inside, including a prized 1989 Chevrolet Camaro owned by Paul Vogler Sr., heavily damaged.

Video surveillance equipment had been installed after last month’s break-in and police say camera footage is part of the evidence against the teens apprehended Tuesday at Jasper Middle School. Police said all those arrested were boys ages 14 to 16.

Jasper police said subsequent leads and information that was developed link two of the six arrested juveniles to a burglary reported Tuesday at a 1526 Mill St. house owned by Chris Faulkenburg.

Additionally, police said a third burglary that occurred last month at a Riverside Drive residence also is considered solved.

The juveniles arrested Tuesday all were released to their respective guardians.

Anyone with further information on the case is asked to call Jasper police at 482-2255 or the department’s anonymous tip line: 481-COPS (2677).
