Salisbury Police charged two 15-year-olds after they received a call about two suspicious young males looking into vehicles in the Walmart parking lot. Officials credit that caller with preventing a possible crime.

An officer approached the pair, one of whom took off running and was caught a short time later. The teens had black gloves, a ski mask, a 200,000-volt stun gun, and a large screwdriver. The incident occurred Monday around 3 a.m., at the store, 323 S. Arlington St.

One teen had existing charges from Cabarrus County and was taken to a juvenile facility there. The other was charged with misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer; possession of burglary tools, concealed/carry weapon violation and violating the curfew.

The teen was released into the custody of his mother, officials said.
