Two teenagers were caught trying to burglarize a home in Ventura on Wednesday night.

Authorities responded to a possible residential burglary in progress call in the 300 block of W. Center Street at about 5:30 p.m. A resident said they saw someone loitering in the yard of the house, and then heard the sound of glass breaking.

When officers arrived, they observed two male suspects in the backyard of the residence. While no property was taken, evidence indicated that the suspects intended to burglarize the home, police said.

The teens were cited for burglary and conspiracy, and then released to their parents. The victims were not at home at the time of the incident.
