The resident saw the suspects leaving the property upon returning to a ransacked home and called police. Police say the suspects left the house through the bedroom windows.

Not long after, authorities located two male juveniles a few blocks away and made the arrests. Laptops, cameras, clothing and jewelry were recovered.

Two days later, between 2 to 4 p.m., police say suspects gained entry into a home in the 1700 block of Camino Lindo by removing louvered windowpanes. The loss is unknown.
