Police officers were dispatched to a Radcliffe Rd. residence last week on reports of a vehicular breaking and entering.
As officers arrived at the reporting party’s residence, they were informed that two suspects matching witness descriptions had been detained by police at a nearby location.
The reporting party reportedly told police that he had observed the two suspects breaking into several parked vehicles. The witness stated that the two individuals, both juveniles, had rifled through one vehicle’s glove compartment, apparently attempting to locate the car’s trunk release latch.
Having no success with the first car, the two then reportedly moved on to another vehicle and searched through its contents.
Investigating officers examined the vehicles and noted that items in the vehicle had been scattered about and appeared to be cluttered.
The witness agreed to perform a “show up” identification of the two suspects and positively named them as the individuals he saw rifling through the vehicles.
Both individuals were placed under arrest and charged with felony nighttime breaking and entering.
