At 10:25 a.m., officers were dispatched to an "in-progress" residential burglary on Elias Drive. A resident living in the area called 911 to report two male subjects attempting to break a window on his neighbor's home. Responding officers observed two males matching the suspect descriptions attempting to leave the area. The two juvenile males attempted to run away as Officer Vasicek approached them. Both males were arrested after a short foot pursuit. Property from the residential burglary was located on the suspects. Both juveniles were transported to Juvenile Hall. One of the arrestees later stated that they randomly picked out a house that had no cars parked in the driveway. They then peeked into the garage window's to determine if cars were in the garage. They walked around to the rear of the house and smashed open a rear French-style door to gain entry. Excellent job by neighbors alerting the police to the whereabouts of the second suspect who was hiding in a bush. Neither suspect is from the neighborhood.
