Sunnyside police nab three juveniles suspected for burglarizing store twice

Three teens were early this morning (Monday) taken into custody by Sunnyside police for a suspected burglary at the Edison Market, located at 1520 East Edison Avenue.

Police suspect the juveniles were involved in another burglary at the same business that occurred yesterday morning.

Sgt. Joey Glossen this morning said police were notified of a burglary at the Edison Market at approximately 2 a.m.

Officers investigating the call were told the front doors to the business were broken out and several items were taken from inside the building before the suspect fled the area on foot.

Officers canvassed the area and located three juvenile males, two of whom are 16-years-old and one who is 13-years-old. The trio was, according to Glossen, found in possession of a .22 caliber rifle that was loaded at the time the teens were taken into custody.

Two of the suspects are from Outlook and the third is believed to be from Toppenish, according to officials.

The items reported stolen from the store yesterday morning (Sunday) included boxes of Swisher Sweets, a tobacco product.

All three suspects were transported to the Yakima County Juvenile Detention Center and Sunnyside police are requesting they face charges of first degree burglary.
