VENTNOR — Two 17-year-old boys from Atlantic City were arrested for trying to break into multiple parked cars Monday, police Chief Joe Fussner said.

A resident in the 4900 block of Atlantic Avenue called police at 8:36 p.m. after seeing the teens pulling on car door handles in an apparent attempt to enter them, Fussner said Tuesday in a news release. After an officer reviewed the teens’ actions on security footage, their description was given to other officers.

Later, an officer found the teens on the 5700 block of Ventnor Avenue. Both were arrested, police said.

Two other cars near where the teens were first spotted were burglarized, police said. One of the attempted break-ins was captured by another security camera.

Both teens were charged with burglary, criminal attempt and conspiracy. They were taken to the Harborfields Juvenile Detention Center in Egg Harbor City.
