Police arrest 2 juveniles in burglary case

FAIRFIELD — Two juveniles were arrested Saturday in connection with a residential burglary.

Police received a call at 2 p.m. about a burglary on the 3100 block of Moraga Court, according to a news release from the Fairfield Police Department.

The homeowner, who was in the residence at the time, told police he heard a noise in his garage and found four teenagers inside. All four fled from the home when confronted. The homeowner found his side garage door had been kicked in, and called police.

Police said the homeowner gave a description of the teens and a direction of travel.

Around the same time, a resident in the same neighborhood, on Miller Drive, called police to report suspicious people in the area. Based on the description and location, police believed they were the same teens from the burglary.

Officers saw the teens entering a yard on Miller Drive and set up a perimeter around the block.

Two of the teens were caught trying to get beyond the perimeter and were later identified as two of those responsible for the burglary, according to the release.

Both suspects, 13- and 14-year-old Fairfield residents, were arrested. The other two remained at large, police said.

Police said they identified one of the juveniles as the suspect in a grand theft case from earlier in the week on the 1700 block of Kolob Drive. A dirt bike was stolen from a home in that case. A later search of the suspect’s home yielded the stolen dirt bike along with other suspected stolen property.

Both teens were booked into juvenile hall on suspicion of burglary, grand theft, possession of stolen property and conspiracy.

    Any bets on when the young criminal's 'leech off society' parent will be in the paper claiming it is the fault of the homeowner for daring to work and provide their own family with items these punks wanted to steal ? 2nd bet: What year will these punks go to Prison?

    Did this juvenile suspect have a parent or parents living in his home? Didn't they wonder where the dirt bike and other stuff came from?

    First thing I thought of was why didn't a parent notice a dirt bike in their garage. Jeez, parents, pay attention! You are not doing your kids any favors.

    I would bet the parents are no better. The best two things a home owner should invest in are a surveillance system & an alarm system. I include a third, a handgun but I understand that's not for everyone.

    Sounds like more of local NAACP President Minnie Noble's ''good ol' boys'' that she says are causing all the trouble. They are also known as ''the sons of Obama'' after President Obama claimed that Trayvon Martin could have been his son.
