Three teens accused of burglary, vandalism at Auburn golf course

Three juveniles have been apprehended in connection with recent burglaries and vandalism at the Auburn Valley Country Club.

Two 15-year-olds and a 14-year-old were taken into custody Thursday, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. Each is accused of burglary, felony vandalism and conspiracy.

The clubhouse and restaurant at the golf course, as well as the golf cart maintenance building, were broken into twice in August. Alcohol was stolen and golf carts were taken out on the course for joy-riding and intentionally damaged, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release. On Oct. 15, golf carts were again taken and vandalized.

Sheriff’s officials said the costs of damages have not been determined.

Following up on leads, a sheriff’s detective found the three suspects at a local high school. The two 15-year-olds are accused of only the October break-in. They were released to the custody of their parents and a report was forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office and the Placer County Probation Department.

The 14-year-old, who was on probation, was taken into custody and booked at the Placer County Juvenile Hall in Auburn.

The names of the suspects have not been released because they are juveniles.
