"..the citizenry of Aspen was stunned by the arrests of twelve teenagers for a string of burglaries, armed robberies, car thefts and home invasions...the robbery spree was relatively tame. No shots were fired, and the weapons used in the robberies were apparently unloaded...But the real shock was the identity of the thieves. They were Aspen's own - familiar faces from the slopes, the pedestrian mall, the bike trails. They were popular students or recent graduates of Aspen High, for the most part, including some star athletes and scholars thought to have exceedingly bright futures. One was the mayor's son."
