When police arrived on scene, they found that a 17-year-old male was being held by several residents after he was seen fleeing from a nearby back yard. He was apparently trying to hide there until the family's large watchdog scared him enough to run into the street.
A second suspect, who is described as a Hispanic male in his 20s, was seen fleeing the area before police arrived. He was driving an older model blue Honda 4-door sedan.
When officers apprehended the teenager, they found that he was in possession of stolen property that was missing from a car that was broken into nearby. He had two GPS devices, an iPhone and an iPod. Officers also discovered signs of attempted entry on two other vehicles.
He was taken to juvenile hall for grand theft, attempted auto burglary and possession of stolen property.
