Santa Cruz police arrested two juveniles in connection with a burglary at a business early this morning. The burglary allegedly occurred at a business in the 100 block of Front Street around 12:10 a.m., according to police. Witnesses told police they saw two males leaving the business and heading toward Pacific Avenue. When officers arrived, they found a window had been smashed and went searching with a police dog for the suspects.
Shortly thereafter they located and detained two juvenile suspects. Both were hiding in the 600 block of Pacific Avenue. One suspect allegedly had glass fragments on his clothes, police said. The police dog was used to track the scent of the suspects from the scene of the burglary to where they were hiding, police said. Officers recovered a switchblade knife from one of the suspects. The boys were booked into juvenile hall on suspicion of burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime.
