Two teens were arrested for burglarizing a home in Redwood City on Thursday morning, a police lieutenant said. The 17-year-old boys entered an unoccupied home through a second-story window in the 900 block of Glennan Drive around 9:50 a.m., Lt. Sean Hart said. They ransacked the home for valuables looking for items that were easily transportable, Hart said.
The home’s security system recorded the boys inside the home, he said. Once the boys realized the home was equipped with cameras they fled, leaving behind most of the property, according to Hart. Responding officers reviewed the home’s video surveillance footage and identified one of the two boys from prior police contacts, Hart said.
Detectives were able to locate that boy soon after and arrested him, according to Hart. The other boy was identified during the investigation late Thursday, Hart said. Both boys were booked into juvenile hall on felony residential burglary charges.
