The ALPD was called to a home near Glenn Road for suspected suspicious behavior. The caller told officers there were footprints in the fresh snow near a garage.
Police said the investigation led to an officer noticing similar footprints near a Minnesota Ave home. This lead to the arrest of two male teenagers, a 14 and 16-year-old. The ALPD said the 16-year-old had ten outstanding warrants spanning from 2016-2020.
