Early Morning Ruckus Has Law Enforcement Stumped

(Gillette, Wyo.) At two in the morning today, Gillette Police responded to the park near Sunflower Elementary after it was reported there were unsupervised children in the area. Near Gillette Avenue and Redwood Street, officers spotted a juvenile boy on his bicycle. When they tried to stop him, he fled, dropping a blue backpack. The backpack contained approximately 27 pounds of petrified wood, and a pack of cigarettes. Four other boys, all 13 year olds, were also found, and had allegedly snuck out of their homes to hang out. Three were returned to their guardians. One of the 13 year olds was unable to contact his parents and was taken to the YES House. The boy on the bike was not located. *Stock photo h/t NaturePost // Pitchengine Communities* #county17 #news
