ROCKLAND — Police recovered a significant amount of stolen merchandise from a recent burglary and took two juveniles into custody on Wednesday, following an investigation into a weekend theft at a Main Street retail shop.

Officers identified several suspects connected to the incident, where thousands of dollars worth of goods were stolen.

The breakthrough came when police found much of the stolen property in an apartment in Rockland.

Two juveniles were detained, with one charged with felony burglary and the other with possession of stolen property.

One of the two was also in violation of existing juvenile probation conditions.

During the recovery operation, an adult attempted to flee the scene by descending from a second-story window using a makeshift rope constructed from bedsheets and blankets.

This individual, along with a second adult in the apartment, was later questioned and subsequently arrested.

The second adult faced charges for violation of conditions of release and was booked into Knox County Jail.

Due to legal restrictions and department policies that prevent the incarceration of juveniles, the two detained youths were released to their guardians after being summonsed.

They had been seen by the Juvenile Community Corrections Officer (JCCO) and the local Juvenile Prosecutor.

A third juvenile involved in the case is facing trespassing charges.

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing, and additional charges are anticipated.
