Two Juneau teens were arrested on theft and burglary charges after they were identified from video surveillance footage, according to police.
Two 17-year-old boys, who police have not publicly identified, were arrested on Thursday and Friday on charges of second-degree burglary, fourth-degree criminal mischief and fourth-degree theft, according to a Juneau Police Department news release, which stated both suspects have been taken to Johnson Youth Center.
At approximately 1:30 a.m. on Thursday, JPD received a report of a burglary at De Hart’s Auke Bay Store on Glacier Highway. Police were notified that the front door leading into the liquor side of the convenience store had been broken, with damages estimated at $720 and that about $250 of alcohol had been stolen. The store’s video surveillance showed the two teens smashing the glass to the front door with rocks, entering the store and then leaving with the stolen alcohol, police said.
