According to Chief .P eoutv Fiord Martin, it is ngtHpiled that of ihe 28, there will be 1 1 who will face charges and var­ ious court action. Due to their ages, most of the youths vill In famtly court, Martin Among the crimes that the youths have admitted to include firing a .22 calibre rifle ai tel­ ephone cables between Croghan and Beaver Falls, which resulted In disruption of service and some IBOO In damages Just to cover labor tor the repairs. In this Incident, Martin said two 14- year-olda face family court ac­ tion. Youths have also admitted breaking into Marllley's Gener­ al Store, Croghan, on 12 sep­ arate occasions, in which they stole sleeping bags, small gas Stoves, clothing, smoking mater­ ials, money and other articles valued at more than 1500. The youths are believed re­ sponsible for reports by Croghan area residents that prowlers have been roaming about their resi­ dences and businesses in the vil­ lage. Martin said there was def­ initely some connection between the prowling Incidents and the burglaries and other crimes. There had also been reports from Croghan residents of \peeping Tom’* Incidents in the village. Martin stated, however, that aa far as he had been able to determine at this point, the Incidents probably were associa­ ted with the youths wandering about peoples' property. In coming and going from the scenes of the various crimes that have been committed and were probably not actual “ peeping Tom\ cases. However, he said the reports art under investigation. Martin Indicated that there will' no doubt be further petty crimes about the Croghan area solved as the investigation of the youths continues. 19 7 3 Florida Picnic Held A total of IDS Lewis Countlans attended the 18th Annual Lewis County Picnic at Rlvervlew, Fit.
