GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Police in Green Bay say they've arrested three teenagers for allegedly trying to break in to an east side home Wednesday morning.
Authorities say a homeowner in the 600 block of Sunnycrest Street heard her doorbell ring just before 10 a.m.
When she went to the door, she saw the three boys standing in front of the house, then walking around the side of the house. That's when she called police.
While waiting for officers to arrive, she heard a noise coming from a bedroom. She went to the room and saw one of the teens climbing in through a window that had been forced open. The teen was about halfway in when the homeowner yelled at him. He climbed back out and ran away. An officer who was arriving on the scene saw the teen running away, chased him through yards and eventually arrested him.
Other officers coming to help first made sure the homeowner was safe and no one else was in the house. An officer with a police dog then found tracks for the other teens and followed them. The two were arrested at the intersection of Menlo Park Road and Hillside Lane.
In questioning the teens, police discovered that one was skipping school, another was scheduled to be in school but left the building with permission and the third was on his lunch period.
Two of the boys are 15 and the other is 16. They were referred to juvenile authorities. Their names were not released.
