VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Five Valdosta juveniles between the ages of 6 and 11 were facing charges Thursday for the burglary of a Valdosta home in January.

The juveniles were accused of breaking into 2821 Caldwell Dr. on January 26th and stealing an XBOX. The kids were not arrested, but police did file a complaint on each of them with the Department of Juvenile Justice and then they were turned over to their parents to await juvenile court.

"When we got over there and took the report," said Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress, "one thing led to another. Detectives from our burglary unit worked the case and as of [Wednesday] we filed charges on five juveniles."

Investigators were working Thursday to determine if the juveniles may also be connected to other recent burglaries in the Caldwell Dr. area.
