Posted: 6:53 AM- SYRACUSE - Five Syracuse High School varsity football players have been charged with more than 50 counts relating to a northern Utah crime spree.

2News reports that on Wednesday the five boys were charged with offenses including burglary and theft involving 10 different businesses.

Police say the boys have confessed to committing the crimes. And, in addition to burglarizing the businesses, they are accused of having vandalized homes and vehicles.

"They started doing this, and they were successful at it," Deputy Davis County Attorney Rick Westmoreland told 2News. "They were getting money... they were getting a rush, so they just continued to do it."

And, the five may not be alone in facing charges. Davis County prosecutors say more charges could be filed against more teen suspects.
