A teen’s mother made sure police were aware of her son’s early morning activities which resulted in his arrest for two break-ins at Bullets and Mullets clothing store, 1309 Bell Road, this morning and early Wednesday.
When officers arrived at the 17-year-old’s residence, his mother was waiting. She informed officers that her son and a 16-year-old accomplice were asleep inside. Both teens were taken into custody. Jewelry, clothing, and burglary tools were recovered from the residence and a black Nissan Altima, known to be driven by the 17-year-old.
During interviews, both teens admitted that they used a hammer to break out the front windows to gain entry to Bullets and Mullets on Wednesday at 4:30 a.m. and again today at 3:15 a.m. Both teens had cuts on their hands. They are each charged in Juvenile Court with two counts of burglary, two counts of vandalism, and felony theft.
South Precinct detectives are working to identify additional suspects involved in the burglaries.
