Two local teens arrested for burglarizing high school, fraternity house and more than a dozen cars.

On January 10th, 19-year-olds Kelton Quinn and Christopher Peterson broke into Judge Memorial Catholic High School and the Phi Kappa Alpha fraternity at the University of Utah. Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill told ABC 4 News, “Just in the fraternity house we’re talking several thousand dollars worth of electronics.”

Police say the suspects targeted these specific locations because they had ties to them. Chris Peterson was a member of the Pike fraternity and allegedly burglarized it because he was upset over being evicted from the house.

After the Pike house, the boys allegedly targeted the high school where Kelton Quinn’s father is the athletic director.

Gill said, “The resource officer said the persons who broke in knew exactly what they were doing because they knew where the concession stand was and where the money was kept.”

Gill says it was Quinn’s father who tipped off police of his son’s involvement. When police arrested Quinn and Peterson at Peterson’s girlfriend’s house they found not only items from the two burglaries but a lot more. Turns out the boys had been burglarizing cars for months.

“This is something that had multiple victims,” said Gill. “Not only at the high school and the fraternity, but also multiple victims that we identified in the affidavit that were vehicle owners.”

Peterson and Quinn each face 22 counts that range from felony burglary to misdemeanor criminal mischief. Both are being held on a $50,000 bond.
