Ketchum police reported this week that two people have been charged with unlawful entry for allegedly trying to steal food last month from the Warm Springs Lodge.

In a press release, Ketchum Police Chief Steve Harkins identified one suspect as 19-year-old Trace J. Page. The second is a 17-year-old girl whose name was not released. Harkins reported that both live in Ketchum.

The police chief said the suspects were identified by video surveillance taken inside the lodge. They allegedly entered the lodge through a locker room window on the evening of Jan. 17.

"They attempted to steal some food items and were interrupted by a private security company doing routine checks," Harkins said. "They fled through the open window they had entered from, leaving the food items behind in trash bags."

Harkins said the suspects "voluntarily came in to the police department" after they were notified that they'd been identified on the surveillance video.
