REDMOND, OR -- Two young suspects are accused of breaking into a Redmond convenience store last week, and stealing e-cigarettes. Investigators identified the 12- and 8-year-old boys on Thursday.


The burglary occurred at about 1 a.m. October 12, at the Chevron Westside One Stop, near 15th and Highland Ave. A witness tipped off police after seeing two people run from the scene. Surveillance footage shows the burglars breaking a window and climbing through, twice, to take e-cigarettes from a display case.


Nearly a week later, a School Resource Officer responded to Elton Gregory Middle School after a student was caught with an e-cigarette. The officer recognized the brand as the same type taken in the burglary and noticed the student resembled the person seen in the video.

At the conclusion of the investigation, the 12-year-old was arrested and released to his parents; he faces charges including Burglary and Criminal Mischief. The 8-year-old was identified but not arrested, because state law states a child must be at least 12 to be charged with a crime, except in rare circumstances.
