Teens Burglarize Northeast Fresno Home

<div class="StoryBlock">
Fresno police say two 15-year-old males burglarized a home in Northeast Fresno. It happened around 11 am where a neighbor caught them in the act and called police. <br /><br />&quot;They broke a back window. Took some personal property, some jewelry and other items. They used a backpack to carry that property out of the residence,&quot; Andy Mercado with Fresno Police said. <br /><br />The victim wasn’t home at the time. When officers arrived they caught the teens jumping a fence into a neighbors yard. The home was surrounded and police used a K-9 to detain and arrest the teens. Fresno Police say thieves do target homes during the holidays.<br /><br />&quot;You want to do the obvious things. Lock your doors and windows. Alarm systems definitely help. But here it was the help of a good neighbor that helped us catch these two burglars,&quot; Mercado said. <br /><br />Fresno Ag Hardware says they get a lot of customers who have just been through a burglary and are looking to make their homes safer. <br /><br />&quot;People who have had their front door straight kicked in. We’ve had people come in and say they were there during the burglary,&quot; Ian Williams said. <br /><br />They sell a number of items that can help you protect your home. Wedges for doors and windows, motion activated lights and door re-enforcement systems. <br /><br />&quot;They are basically pieces of metal that go over your door and they also go onto the inside of your door as well to give it a little bit more reinforcement,&quot; Williams said. <br /><br />Many people are choosing heavy duty locks for front doors that are controlled with a smart phone. If you are looking for piece of mind, putting valuables in a safe may do the trick. <br /><br /></div>
