Alternative school students captured after home burglarized


A neighbor saw the suspects break a window and enter the unoccupied home and called police. When deputies arrived, the suspects quickly scattered. Two of the suspects, teenage girls, were arrested on a nearby streets. Two other suspects ran into a wooded area but were quickly detected and apprehended by an HCSO K9 team. Two others were arrested later, in the neighborhood and still reportedly carrying some of the stolen items.

The homeowner, who wasn't home at the time, says he hopes the thieves do not get off easy. He says they will only learn if the law is strict.

All six face charges of burglary of a habitation. They include two 14-year-old females; two 15-year-old males; and two males, ages 17 and 18. The teens are all said to be students at Highpoint Alternative School.

The names of the two adult suspects have not yet been released.
