So was it the surveillance cameras at the Midtown Liquor store that provided the link between the perps and the crime, or some other clues--like the perp in jail confessed.

Also makes one wonder about whether handling juveniles with kid gloves is a practice that is worthy of continuation. When teens (14-16) act like adults, and commit felonious crimes--maybe it's time to see them for what they are, and forget that they are teens.
