OGDEN -- Police have arrested three men they suspect burglarized the Youth Impact center over the Labor Day weekend.
Police say thieves broke into the Youth Impact center, 2305 Grant Ave., and stole power tools, eight computers, 10 handheld radios, a safe with checks and credit cards inside, as well as several other items.
The center provides at-risk Ogden youths, from grades four to 12, with after-school programs.
When staff discovered the break-in Monday afternoon, they handed extensive surveillance footage of the suspects over to Ogden detectives.
They followed the leads and on Wednesday arrested Logan Anderson, 19, Shane Norin, 24, and Anthony Thompson, 33, who were staying at local motels, Lt. Mike Ashment said in a news release.
The three were booked into Weber County Jail on Wednesday on suspicion of theft and burglary.
Detectives recovered some of the power tools and other small items. They are still trying to recover the computers and other electronics, but apparently most of the stolen property was sold on the streets, according to the release.
"We're not gonna get any of that stuff back, but just knowing that the individuals that pretty much violated us ... are already behind bars, that's a compliment to the police department," said Robb Hall, director of Youth Impact.
The center had to close its doors this week, because without computers and radios, it's difficult for staff to serve and keep track of the approximately 100 students who attend each night.
But the closure won't be long.
The center has received a level of support from the community that it has never seen before, Hall said.
People and organizations from as far as Salt Lake City have contacted the center to offer their support in the form of donations to help them get up and running again.
Some have even offered to let the center replace the stolen property "with no timeline on payment" so that it can reopen Monday, Hall said, adding: "It's an awesome feeling."
