Two 15-year-old boys were arrested Monday in Salinas on the grounds of a school after witnesses saw them breaking into a home and leaving with bags of stolen property, police said.
At 3:09 p.m. Monday, police were summoned to the 1000 block of Kimmel Street on a report of two suspicious males outside of a house, including one who had used a crowbar to open a side window of the home, Salinas police Cmdr. Henry Gomez said.
The suspect had entered the home and opened the front door to let the second suspect inside, Gomez said.
The two were seen leaving the home moments later holding bags full of stolen property, according to Gomez.
Officers located two individuals matching the description of the suspects walking onto the grounds of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Academy at 925 N. Sanborn Road less than a block northeast of Kimmel Street, Gomez said.
The boys were carrying laptops, jewelry and other items, he said.
The owner of the home was contacted and identified the property as his, Gomez said.
The two boys, both of whom were on probation, were booked into Monterey County Juvenile Hall in Salinas on suspicion of residential burglary, conspiracy, possession of burglary tools and violating probation, he said.
