DIAMOND CITY — Boone County Sheriff Tim Roberson said an investigation of a series of burglaries in Diamond City led to the arrest of four juveniles.

From April through June, investigators looked into a string of burglaries that included the Sugar Loaf Marina and three separate residences.

Property reported stolen included alcohol, cash and two utility terrain vehicles, Roberson said.

One of the UTVs was recovered in a remote area of Diamond City and evidence collected from it led to the arrest of one male juvenile.

That juvenile led investigators to the location of the other UTV and follow-up investigation led to the arrest of three other juveniles involved.

Roberson said the investigation was turned over to juvenile authorities for a decision on criminal charges.

The sheriff urges everyone to lock their vehicles and residences.

“If you witness any suspicious activity, Sheriff Roberson urges you to call the Boone County Sheriff's Office,” a statement said.

The BCSO phone number is (870) 741-8404.
