POLICE BEAT: Two teens arrested, charged in two burglaries

A Mineral Wells police spokesperson said Friday two individuals were arrested Thursday in connection to two recent residential burglaries.

Complainants in both burglary reports told police they observed a green Jeep Cherokee nearby.

A burglary report filed Thursday in the 1700 block of N.W. 5th Avenue indicates someone entered the residence through a rear window and removed a laptop computer and a video gaming console. Another report filed later that day in the 200 block of S.E. 19th Street states someone entered the residence and removed a flat-screen television and video gaming console.

The alleged victim of the first burglary reported a Hispanic male driving a Jeep away from the area while the second complainant reportedly observed a similar vehicle parked down the road from the residence and, upon passing the vehicle, observed a Hispanic male and a juvenile inside.

Upon further investigation, officers identified two suspects, Juan Carlos Marcial, 17, of Mineral Wells and a juvenile whose name was not released due to his age.

Investigators also reportedly recovered items stolen from both burglaries.

Both teens arrested face two counts of burglary of a habitation.
