Four Syracuse High School teens are in big trouble after a wild crime spree through four cities and two counties.

The list of charges they're facing is long. According to Ogden police Lt. Scott Sangberg, they are facing: burglary, forced entry, damage to property and reckless driving charges.

Sangberg says the teens stole crowbars, hammers and saws from the Wal-Mart in Clinton. They tried to break in to Paul's Automotive in Syracuse, as well as the water slides in Riverdale before sneaking into the El Monte Golf Course.

There, investigators say the teens took a cash register, a safe and some electronic equipment. An alarm went off, and, ultimately, the golf course manager came to check it out. He saw the teens leaving and chased them.

"It is a lot of work for one night, and they probably ought to give up their life of crime right now because I don't think they've really got it in ‘em," Sangberg said.

Evidence of that might be in the chase that followed. The suspects were driving along Canyon Road, dumping the cash register and a bowling ball as they went. They lost control of their car at 1598 Canyon Road and crashed into a duplex.

Nobody was injured. Three of the four teens were apprehended after a short foot pursuit. The driver stayed in the car.

All four teens are being held at the Weber Valley Detention Center. They face multiple felony and misdemeanor charges.
