PALATKA, Fla. (AP) - Six children are accused of being responsible for a string of burglaries in north Florida.
Palatka police say the children range in age from 10 to 15. The children face felony charges for allegedly stealing computers, jewelry, guns and other items in nine burglaries since April.
Detective Danette Evey said Monday that the children didn't think they had done anything wrong because they hadn't hurt anyone.
Police said the children watched the houses they intended to rob. The 10-year-old allegedly knocked on each door to see if anyone was home.
Evey said investigators found two of the children holding bags of jewelry. Evey said the children couldn't explain where they had gotten the jewelry.
Police say they expect to arrest two more children and two adults.
