A string of thefts in Mountain Home leads cops to local high school

Over 30 reports of stolen/damaged Christmas decorations were reported in Mountain Home on Monday night. Surveillance footage of the suspects and their vehicle led authorities to a local high school parking lot.

Officers didn't see the stolen items but did notice glitter and broken ornaments in the backseat.

After being confronted by the officers the suspects -who are all in junior-high and high school- told police where the items were.

MHPD are now sorting through the items to return to the owners.
