FONDA - A recent report of a burglary in progress led to the arrests of two boys on burglary charges, Montgomery County Sheriff's officials said Wednesday.
The boys, both unnamed due to their status as juveniles, were each charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree criminal mischief and petit larceny, officials said in a release posted to the sheriff's Facebook page.
The incident happened on March 26 at about 4 p.m. Dispatchers received a 911 call for a burglary at a residence in Fonda, officials said.
Sheriff's deputies, investigators and members of the state police responded. The suspects broke in, damaged items in the residence and stole cash, sheriff's officials said.
Information gathered led to the two juveniles being identified as suspects. They were then located and charged as juveniles, officials said.
"This is just another example of the importance of inter-agency cooperation, swift response and utilization of resources which quickly helped identify and arrest the subjects involved," the sheriff's release, signed by Sheriff Jeffery Smith, reads.
