13-year-olds admit 27 crimes

Two 13-year-old boys have admitted carrying out 27 crimes to the police, the Telegraaf reports.

The boys, from rural Paterswolde/Eelde in the province of Drenthe, admitted a series of theft, vandalism and threats.

These include threatening a 12-year-old boy from a neighbouring town by sending him a video in which the boys waved around a fake gun, local police told the paper.

They also scratched and pulled mirrors off 24 cars and a camper van and stole tools from a construction site.

Police did not say what will happen to the boys.
