SALISBURY — Two teenagers were caught during an afternoon burglary on Elm Street Wednesday, authorities said.
According to Salisbury Police, 19-year-old Antwon James Brown and 16-year-old Matthew Lennon, both of Lincolnton Road, were arrested inside an Elm Street home about 3 p.m.
Police said the two teens had gathered nearly $2,000 in televisions, cell phones, laptops and video recorders.
Officers responded to the call in the 400 block of Elm Street at 3:07 p.m. after a neighbor saw suspicious activity behind the home.
Authorities surrounded the house and called for the suspects to surrender. Officers then brought in K-9 Jack and yelled that they would release the dog on the robbers if they did not come out.
The two quickly called out to police that they were surrendering.
Inside one of the teenager’s pockets, authorities found a necklace and cell phone that belonged to the homeowner, the report said.
Police said the two teens entered the home through a back door, which was found ajar. Lennon was found carrying a flat head screwdriver.
The 16-year-old Lennon was charged with felony possession of burglary tools, felony burglary and felony larceny.
Brown was charged with felony burglary and felony larceny.
Both were in jail Thursday morning under $10,000 bonds.
