When officers arrived at the aquatic center on July 30 at about 10: 45 p.m., they found juveniles swimming in the pool. Upon further investigation with the juveniles, Holmen police were able to solve seven cases of vandalism, theft and trespassing that happened between June 18 and July 30, 2013.
Holmen police said several pieces of heavy machinery were damaged and so were some houses being built in the village. Officers were able to recover several stolen items. Police estimate that about $30,000 in damage was done and about $2,100 worth of property was stolen.
The juveniles are being referred to the La Crosse County Juvenile Courts for numerous charges.
