Police searching for juvenile suspect in Belmont home burglary, 2 already arrested
BELMONT — Police have arrested two juveniles who burglarized a Belmont home of electronics and a guitar, but are still searching for one juvenile suspect.
A resident of High Street told police that they left to shop at a local grocery store and when they returned an hour later, they realized a door was open and items had been stolen at about 11:20 a.m. Friday.
A department K-9 was able to establish a scent track from the burglarized home. While officers conducted a neighborhood canvas on foot with the K-9 team, a contractor working in the downtown area told police that several minors were observed walking away from the neighborhood carrying a box of electronics and a guitar.
The information led officers to identify two juveniles about a mile away, one of whom admitted to the burglary.
The investigation continues as police seek out a third juvenile suspect. Detectives gathered finger prints and other evidence from the home as part of the investigation.
The juveniles involved will face various charges through the Juvenile Justice System.
