Three female juveniles have been identified as suspects in a string of Hartland camp burglaries in 2016 that resulted in damage to camps and missing firearms, according to police.

On Sept. 7 and 8, 2016, the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office received a report that three camps had been burglarized near Breakneck Lane. The suspects inflicted moderate damage to the properties during the burglaries and stole several items including three firearms, Sheriff Dale Lancaster said in a statement.

Two of the juveniles reportedly confessed to participating in the burglaries this month during interviews with detectives. One of the firearms has since been recovered and the two juveniles have been charged with two counts each of burglary, which is a Class B crime.

The names of the juveniles are not being released. At the time of the burglaries, they were 13, 15 and 16 years old.

They are expected to appear in Somerset County Juvenile Court Nov. 26.

The third juvenile is still being sought and additional charges are anticipated.
