According to The Big Spring Herald, Devan James Cook, Anthony Alphonso Lewis, Nicholas Lee Sharp and Kevin Logan Towner are charged with felony criminal mischief of a public monument (more than $1,500 less than $20,000).
Police say Sharp, 17, Towner, 17, Cook, 17, and Lewis, 17 -- all Big Spring High School students -- broke the window of a helicopter on display at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Big Spring on August 26th.
The teens then reportedly stole a mannequin and a clock from the helicopter, along with a World War II- era belt and canteen from the fallen soldier display case.
The thieves reportedly returned most of the stolen items to a nearby maintenance shed on Labor Day with an apology note, but police couldn't find any fingerprints in the area.
Still, officers say the 4 teens confessed to the crime after their arrest on September 10th.
Three of the teens also reportedly admitted to wiping off fingerprints from the stolen items.
