VENTURA, Calif. (KABC) -- Two adults and two teens were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy and residential burglary in Ventura on Friday.

Authorities said around 1:28 p.m., an off-duty Ventura County district attorney investigator was in the 4900 block of Lafayette Street when he saw suspicious activity near a home.

He told authorities he watched four suspects walk onto the property. Two of them remained in the front of the home as lookouts and two went through the backyard to gain access into the residence. The pair eventually got into the home through a rear window.

While the two were inside the home, the investigator called the Ventura Police Department and officers were dispatched.

Two of the suspects fled from authorities onto the 126 Freeway, but were eventually caught. The other two attempted to flee from the front of the home, but were detained by the investigator and patrol officers.

The two adults - 18-year-old Miguel Ochoa and 19-year-old Gordon Nico - were booked into Ventura County Jail on suspicion of conspiracy and residential burglary. The two teens, 15 and 17, were booked into juvenile hall and face the same charges.

Authorities said no one was in the home at the time of the suspected burglary.
