Two Jackson teens could spend the rest of their lives in prison. it comes after a six-month investigation, and the robbery of the Parma library and the shooting of an animal.
The Jackson county sheriff's office isn't releasing the names of two teens in trouble with the law. The alleged culprits who broke into and robbed the Parma library are caught. The library is housed in a historical building located at the corner of main and church streets. In June, police say the two teens broke into the library and stole some cash and electronics. everybody was just absolutely appalled that it would happen here.
Then in September the teen allegedly broke into the library again. This time stealing a safe, some more cash and electronics. "After stealing from the library a second time, what's more egregious to the locals is the fact that the alleged juveniles shot a cow multiple times, later killing that animal on a farm somewhere along stepladder road."
The teen drove to the farm in a car they stole from one of their parents investigators say the shotgun they used to shoot the cow was stolen from another relative.
"We are going to protect the general public. Whether that's adults committing crimes or juveniles. The prosecutor wants closure to this case and for residents to once again feel safe.
The teens are charged with two counts of breaking and entering and torturing an animal. They may also be charged with safe breaking, which is a life in prison offense.
