Two teens accused of Pasadena daytime burglary

PASADENA — Police arrested two teenage boys Saturday afternoon after finding them in the midst of a home burglary, authorities said.
The suspects — a 15-year-old Pasadena boy and a 16-year-old Rancho Cucamonga boy — were taken to juvenile hall following the 2:15 p.m. break-in at a house in the 100 block of South Craig Avenue, Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson said.
A witness called police to report seeing two intruders breaking into the home, Clawson said. Officers arrived to find “what appeared to be a kicked-in front door” and immediately surrounded the home.
Officers ordered anyone inside the home to surrender, and one of the teens complied, the lieutenant said. But the second teen ran from the home.
Police caught up with the fleeing teen and arrested him in a nearby yard, Clawson said.
The home had been ransacked, but it did not appear anything had yet been stolen, he added.
