LAKE MARY, Fla. -- Two baby-faced teens, ages 13 and 14,  were hanging around on bicycles in the middle of the night with two other juveniles when an alert neighbor caught them pilfering pocket change and gift cards from her unlocked vehicle before they were forced to high-tail it on their bikes.

The first two teens apparently didn't get quite far enough away to escape the long arm of the law, including the potential sharp teeth of a K-9 after deputies arrived en masse.

At approximately 12:40 a.m., Seminole County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 700 block of Brightview Drive, in unincorporated Lake Mary, in response to the woman's 9-1-1 call of a burglary in progress. 

Upon arrival, deputies spoke to the victim who indicated a neighbor contacted her after witnessing four suspects burglarize her vehicle. The juveniles also managed to grab some kind of electronic device from one of several targeted cars there.

The juveniles also managed to grab some kind of electronic device from one of several targeted cars there. 

During a search of the area, an abandoned bicycle was discovered at a nearby residence next to several bushes.  A K-9 unit responded and immediately located two suspects hiding under the bushes. Both juvenile suspects, identified as Kameron Myers and Cedrick Williams, were taken into custody without incident and placed under arrest. 

As deputies searched Myers, they found a LG brans tablet that was reported stolen from another vehicle in the area. Myers and Williams were transported to the Seminole county Juvenile Assessment Center. Myers was charged with burglary and loitering.  Williams was charged with burglary and violation of probation.

Two other juveniles apparently got far enough away to elude capture, for now at least.
