AKRON -- Two 15 year old boys were placed in custody after leading police on a brief foot chase.
Akron Police say it was shortly before midnight Tuesday when officers responded to a burglary in progress in the 900 block of Bloomfield Avenue.
A neighbor reportedly witnessed one teen climbing through the window of a nearby house before opening the front door to let the second teen inside.
Minutes later, police say both boys were seen carrying a big screen television out of the front door.
When the suspects spotted responding officers, both teens fled on foot between the houses.
They were each caught and placed in the custody of the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center.
The stolen property was recovered and returned to the owner.
