Akron neighbor spots teen burglars

AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Police Officers arrest two 15-year-old boys for burglary following a brief foot chase.

Just before midnight Tuesday, Akron Police responded to a burglary in progress in the 900 block of Bloomfield Avenue.

A neighbor observed one male climbing through a window of a neighbor's house.

The male then opened the front door of the house and let the second male suspect into the house.

Minutes later, both males were observed carrying a big screen television out the front door.

The television was placed behind a garage.

When the suspects saw the responding officers, they ran on foot between the houses.

After a brief foot chase, both suspects were apprehended.

The teens are now in the custody of the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center.

The stolen property was recovered and returned to the owner.
