    If he was old enough to be scared at the appearance of an officer, then he was old enough to know that he was deliberatly breaking the law. He may not be old enough to understand all the consequences for his choices, but most adults do not understand that either.

    Why do we insist that teenagers cannot be held responsible for their choices, but we let them drive on public streets. These young men should have the opportunity to learn honesty the hard way as they are not quite bright enough to learn it the easy way.

    Kids from GOOD homes are influenced by kids who have no supervision. When parents are not allowed to discipline their kids without the government interfering and when kids are allowed to make their own decisions from birth without parental interference what can you expect? People who think Utah is the only state with this problem, have their head in the sand. When God is left out of everything, the devil takes control. Wake up America!!! Lets take out Country back.

    April 22, 2009 12:47 p.m.

    1)Case the neighborhood
    2)Get supplies together
    3)Develop an alibi
    4)Know where the cops live
    5)Drop a deuce BEFORE heading out to work for the evening.

    I wish that all burglars were scared enough that they defecated in their pants. Then we could smell them coming. It would have been an unpleasant experience for the police who had to make the arrest and anyone who was in a holding cell with the burglar. Perhaps his fright will make him feel more sorry for his act along with the blow out.

    They come from good homes, bad homes, educated and uneducated. My wife busted shoplifters that ranged from a homeless guy stealing baby formula to feed his kid to an admirals wife for stealing shoes and many other types in between including doctors, lawyers teachers and my favorite the adult probation officer.

    It really is kids will be kids because kids just do stupid things. It is the catching him after he crapped his pants that made it funny and there fore "news" worthy.

    Buglarize? When did everything become acceptable to put 'ize' on the end of something and call it a verb? Don't you mean 'steal'? Maybe it's just because I'm British haha.

    Also - well done to the police for detaining the kid - maybe teach him a lesson that crime isn't victimless and that even if he thought it was just childish foolery it's certainly not smart.

    This kid may have been saved from a life of crime by an irritable bowel.

    I would not have wanted to be that policeman who had to pat him down before putting him under arrest or the jailer who had to account for his personal belongings as he was being booked.

    The kid was charged with two misdemeanours: carrying loaded pants without a permit and discharging a bum within the city limits.

It's really funny maybe this kid will remember this the next time he thinks about stealing a car, or hopefully his friends will remind him of the STINK he made from his last attempt. If his parents were any kind of people they would keep his undershorts as a friendly reminder.

    Surely you people must have had childhoods and can remember breaking a law or two?
    But Breaking into cars, i think is a little more hardcore than say....stealing a playboy, and as such maybe should not be written off as "oh boys will be boys."
    Let the punishment fit the crime, make them repay any damage done by making them get a job, community service, and spend a few days in a real prison....to let them know where they can end up.
    Just a thought.
    PS. yes having a burgular crap his pants when caught "brown handed" is very funny and I'm glad i herd about it.

Give him a fine, and make his community service cleaning the public toilets in the local parks. His "friends" and school chums will give him punishment that will last a lifetime. Imagine calling mom & dad and saying by the way please bring me a clean set of spankies.

Lots of kids from good homes make stupid mistakes. When you're 16 your peers have a lot more influence on you than your parents. This story is great and it's nice to see these kids get caught and humiliated. Hopefully they will be embarrassed enough by this incident that they will learn their lesson and wise up. And to the moron that says "no one in Utah has a sense of humor" I was laughing so hard I about fell out of my chair and I am a Utah native and LDS.

    April 21, 2009 9:00 a.m.

    For all of the people who say "boys will be boys" and to back off on them. YOU are the reason I hate people. YOU are the reason these boys are stealing. I was a teen boy and I never stole or broke into cars and came from a broken family but a "good" home. Or as good as it could have been. So instead of the parents holding the sign...why dont YOU go out their with them and hold the sign. Since YOU seem to think this is ok then why dont YOU go to jail for them instead of the boys. Which of course will never happen because they wont get jail time becuase people like YOU wont allow that to happen. YOU are ruining our country and I want you gone.

    This story sounds like what happened in Lehi on Saturday night as I was wrapping up for the night at 11 p.m. I heard a noise in my carport and opened the back door to find two young men crouched behind my van. I yelled at them and they ran into the street where an SUV was waiting for them. I called 911 and gave the officer a description of the car, including the license plate. When he came back after following up on my explanation, he said they had stopped a vehicle on Main Street which matched the description and it was a group of kids playing hide and go seek. I suggested that it might not be so much fun if someone with a gun had caught them. Fun can be had in better ways.

    I hope the kids thinks twice next time. His friends will not forget it for sure for a long time. The person who says boys will be boys probably did some theft when he was that age and turned his life around. The ones who took cheap shots at Utah are not very well read. Such stories happen nationwide, not just Utah.

    Well I guess your mom telling you to always wear clean underwear doesn't really work if you..um...soil them. Seriously though, his friends know who he is and I'm sure they won't let him forget about this. Hopefully this is a very good lesson learned!

    I have family there and read to keep up. I think the story is hilarious. Kudos for printing it all. Crime doesn't pay...no, crime stinks!!

    And for those of you who think this kind of thing only happens in Utah or would be written up in Utah, try reading New York, Dutch or German news!!!

    This has been the best story from DesNews. The headline alone made my day. Please give us more stories like this!

    Also I want to know who the kid was, so I can find him on facebook and totally make fun of him on his wall!

  • Boys will be boys...

    They may have come from good homes, and maybe the parents are doing everything they can think of to guide these boys in the right direction. But to suggest that this be left up to the parents? This isn't a victimless crime that won't cost something to others, this is a serious crime that older people go to jail for. Toilet-papering, doorbell-ditching, and other things like that you leave up to the parents - to a point... but not this.

  • Boys will be boys?!
    April 20, 2009 4:41 p.m.

    "Boys will be boys?!" Wow.

    If breaking into cars and stealing other people's stuff is just a normal and accepted part of boyhood, then I guess I missed out in my youth.

    Who would say something like that? I guess this person wouldn't mind then if I asked my 4 sons to help themselves to any personal belongs in his (or her) cars and house then. If they get away with it, then cool, we could use a new flat screen TV.

    And if they get caught, well, boys will be boys so we'll just let these "good homes" deal with it, because these "good homes" produced such good boys to begin with.

    Funny story though. Not only would most people consider this news, I wouldn't be surprised if it makes national news and perhaps Leno as well.

    And what's with the anti-Utah cheap shots?

    Tell us what state you are from and I bet I can find stories just as ludicrous about your home state as well, so why not give the hate a rest?

    I can guess that the reputation that he gets at school is not one that he wants or that will go away soon. I can hear them talking now at his 25 year class reunion. "Hey remember the time... lol. "Oh yeah, I remember you now, Aren't you the one that ... lol.

    Ditto. You're absolutely right. This reporter was just looking to poke fun at an otherwise serious criminal situation. I guess he's bored with his job. Time to move on.

    Isn't this too much information? Why is the focus on the story scatalogical? I know you're reporting on crime, but is it really importance to know that a criminal or potential criminal had a bowel movement? Did he pick his nose as well? Are there journalistic standards anymore?

    To Anonymous: I hope you were being funny. Letting the parents deal with it is what got the cars broken into in the first place. Parents are off the radar in this case or the boys wouldn't have come up with the idea of such recreation in the first place, or had a party of their peers to run to in the second place. Wake up! They need to stay in Farmington Bay for a long time until they realize that messing in one's pants isn't the worse to come from getting caught!!

    Faced with certain capture, the teen did the only scatological thing he could do - he got a case of the runs.

    The police charged him with attempted burglary and aggravated incontinence.

  • Public humiliation

    If its my child, public humiliation will stop em by using the oriental punishment of bamboo em on the street so he won't do it again. Or we can have walk and do worst than that. Same at the kids writing on the walls. Have him stand on the corner of downtown with a signs say "I am a thief" for six months bet he wont do it again.
