Four juveniles suspected of residential burglary were arrested after a helicopter spotted them loading stolen property into their car in San Bernardino.

Police officers arrested the unidentified 15-year-old juveniles outside a victim's residence in the 200 block of East 52nd Street Friday around 1:20 p.m.

According to police, a neighbor spotted the suspects jumping a neighbor's fence into the backyard and then into the house. The neighbor called 911 and gave dispatchers a detailed description of what she witnessed.

A responding San Bernardino County Sheriff's Helicopter arrived on scene just as the suspects were loading stolen property into a car outside of the victim's residence. Upon seeing the helicopter, the suspects fled in separate directions but were soon found hidden in various yards.

The suspects were arrested without incident and lodged at Juvenile Hall. The stolen property was recovered and returned to the victim.

During the investigation, detectives learned the suspects had left their high school campus without permission.
