A 13-year-old boy is facing criminal charges for a series of burglaries at the Morningstar Marketplace in Thomasville.

Northern York County Regional police said the teen is responsible for five break-ins at the marketplace, which houses a farmer's market and a flea market, between June 25 and August 14.

During one incident August 10, police said the boy broke into the main market area and stole guitars and other music equipment from one vendor, and took more than $1,800 worth of video games and gaming systems from another vendor.

Investigators said they were able to track tools left at the scene to the boy's father, and many of the stolen items were found in his home.

The teen will face charges of burglary, criminal trespass, theft, receiving stolen property and criminal mischief through the juvenile court system.
