Wrong

"Highway Patrol didn't charge the boys, because troopers didn't see the crime themselves, and because Lt. Sibbett detained them outside his jurisdiction."

Trooper's can arrest on Lt. Sibbett's testimony regardless of his jurisdiction as long as there was not a reasonable amount of time that had passed (ie: several hours to a day or so). Lt. Sibbett would have to testify in court to the boys actions. No different than a Trooper arresting a drunk driver at an accident scene after the accident where the Trooper did not witness the accident or see the drunk driver driving. This whole story smells and it's coming from the DA's office.
