Case: 1201-2774

An anonymous person called to report a possible auto burglary in progress in the parking lot.  Dispatchers were able to locate the suspects on surveillance cameras as they left the area.  Officers located the suspects in a nearby store and detained them.  One of the suspects was found to be in possession of a BB gun.  Officers searched the parking lot and located a possible victim vehicle.  Both juveniles were identified and transported to the El Cerrito Del Norte substation to be interviewed by a detective (who had responded to the scene).  Both were cited for truancy violations, one for possession of an airsoft weapon and both were released to parents.  The burglary investigation is on-going.
