NEIGHBORS’ WATCHFULNESS LEADS TO BURGLARY ARRESTS

On Thursday, 29 July 2010 at 12:43 p.m., a citizen in the 2200 block of South 10th St. observed two teenaged boys acting suspiciously near his neighbor’s house. The boys were observed knocking on the front door and when they received no response, they went to the back door. At that point the neighbor telephoned police and reported the possible burglary in progress. Multiple police units responded to the call, and the first unit to arrive observed the two suspects running away from the residence. It was later determined that the rear door to the house had been forced open.

A foot chase then ensued with the suspects. Both suspects were eventually apprehended. The first suspect, a 15 year old boy, was apprehended in the 2100 block of Yale Blvd. The second suspect, Tramonde Woods 17, was apprehended in the 2200 block of South 14th St.

During the subsequent investigation, it was determined that these suspects are responsible for nine (9) other burglaries in the area during the month of July. Detectives are continuing there investigation into these crimes.
