Two 12-year-old Bountiful girls who stole nearly $150 in merchandise from eight different stores at a downtown mall have been referred to Juvenile Court.

The girls were stopped by a Crossroads Mall security guard who found them in possession of numerous items, including stickers, Valentines Day gifts, confetti and cosmetics. The merchandise came from two Hallmark stores, the Missionary Emporium, Pamela's, Nation's Creations, Hot Flash, Rainbows and Willoughby's.
