The informant to the Sheriff’s Department was a 14 year-old female who was inside the residence when the two male juveniles attempted to make entry through several doors and windows. The 14 year-old hid inside a bedroom closet and called 911, providing dispatchers with information about what was occurring, ultimately leading to arrests of the two suspects. The quick actions and calm demeanor demonstrated by the young informant led to an immediate response and arrest of the suspects.
The investigation is ongoing; however, investigators believe the suspects may be connected to other recent burglaries and thefts in the area.
The suspects were arrested and booked into Orange County Juvenile Hall.
