Pranks keep Rexburg police busy

Criminal investigation reached new heights in Rexburg at around 10 p.m. Monday, when a police officer spotted two people attempting to climb an outdoor fire escape ladder onto the roof of WalMart.

Further investigation found a group of BYU-Idaho students was already on top of the building. A total of 10 students, all age 18, were cited for trespassing.
