Teens Accused Of Burglarizing Home

Wichita Falls mother claims two teens burglarized her house while she and her child were home.

The victim said the 16 and 17-year-old boys forced their way into her house Tuesday, just after 2 p.m. The mother and child escaped, and ran to a neighbor's house where they called police.

Police said they searched the area and found the suspects on the 1900 block of Hines, covered in grass stains, stickers and sweat. The officers arrested the boys around the same time other officers took the victim to check her house. She said $130 in cash and a red camera were missing. She later identified the suspects and the money was recovered along with a cell phone and jewelry.

Both teens are charged with burglary of a habitation. The 17-year-old, identified as Jose Adolfo Sanchez Jr., is being held at the Wichita County Detention Center on a $25,000 bond.
