The Eagle County Sheriff's Office investigated a burglary at Battle Mountain High School in Edwards, Colorado reported June 17, 2010 and one at Berry Creek Middle School in Edwards, Colorado reported June 19, 2010. Approximately $9,000 worth of electronic and other miscellaneous equipment was taken from the schools.

The Eagle County Sheriff's Office recovered the property stolen from the schools on June 23, 2010 at the Eagle River Village Trailer Park in Edwards, Colorado. Physical evidence left at the crime scenes as well as tips from concerned citizens lead the Eagle County Sheriff's Office to five Eagle County juveniles believed to have been involved in the burglaries and another for theft by receiving. The suspects admitted their involvement in the crime during questioning and were arrested.

Deputies also recovered cell phones, tools, stereo, and other miscellaneous items that have yet to be reported lost or stolen. “I would like to return all of the stolen property my deputies recovered to the rightful owners,” said Sheriff Joe Hoy. “We need the community to help us, by making a report.”
