PORT ANGELES — A sword-toting teen-ager and his apparent 11-year-old accomplice were charged with second-degree burglary Monday for allegedly stealing a collection of antique swords.
Police did not release the identities of the children.
Both boys appeared in juvenile court Monday to be formally charged by the Clallam County prosecuting attorney’s office.
A court commissioner presiding over the hearing allowed the 11-year-old to go home with his parents, but ordered the 13-year-old held on $1,000 bail.
Both are scheduled to appear in juvenile court for arraignment at 9 a.m. Wednesday.
Police Sgt. Erick Zappey said the two children were arrested Sunday after police linked the 13-year-old boy to an alleged burglary and theft of the sword collection.The rest of this story appears in today’s Peninsula Daily News. Click on “Subscribe” to get the PDN delivered to your home or office.
