Casper Police caught three children after they allegedly broke into five residences and an office of the Girl Scouts, all in east Casper, a police spokesman said Friday.

"There are two on Robin Street, over there there's on on Utah, two on Colorado, and the business on Sun Drive, which is the Girl Scout office," Detective Zack Winter said.

The three male children, all under 16, were released to their parents because they cannot be arrested without permission from the district attorney, Winter said.

However, the alleged crimes are serious because of what they are and what the children took, he said.

Burglaries are felonies, regardless if anything is taken, Winter said. In these incidents, some firearms were taken, which elevates the crime of burglary to aggravated burglary, he added.

There was no evidence of forced entry into the residences or the Girl Scouts office, Winter said.

The case remains under investigation, Winter said.
