CORPUS CHRISTI–Two people including a juvenile were arrested for breaking into a home when the residents were out-of-town on vacation in Corpus Christi.
Police responded to a home on the 1700 block of Bois D’Arc when neighbors reporting seeing the lights on and two people sitting on a couch shortly before 11 on Saturday night.
When they arrived, witnesses reported Desiree Garza, 17, and a 16-year-old boy left the house and were walking in the neighborhood.
They caught up with Garza, while the boy tried to run away and he was arrested after a short pursuit.
Neighbors identified the two as the burglars. Police said Garza tried to get rid of eight ounces of marijuana and lied about her name.
Garza was taken to the city jail and arrested for burglary of a habitation, possession of marijuana and failure to id.
The 16-year-old was taken to the Juvenile Justice Center and booked on charges of burglary of a habitation and evading arrest.
