That awkward moment you get caught breaking into cars…

Around 3 a.m. this morning, an alert resident on Eisenhower Drive called the police to report two males trying to break into their vehicles. Approximately 5 minutes later, as K9 Officer Dean was searching the area, he caught the two juvenile suspects, ages 15 and 17, attempting to break into yet another car. The juveniles were promptly detained and arrested without incident. The investigation is ongoing but will likely result in several more charges.
