Juveniles Arrested For Burglary

On April 23, 2014 at 2:46 P.M. officers of the Warner Robins Police Department responded to 92 Westcliff Circle in reference to suspicious activity.

The responding officers were advised that two males were seen running from behind the residence carrying a television and then running to a nearby apartment complex. 

Officers were advised of the apartment they possibly ran into and went to make contact with the individuals inside.  A teenage male opened the door and then closed the door when he saw the officers. 

Officers made contact with the homeowner who consented to have the residence searched.  Officers found a television and a Nintendo Wii that was recorded as being stolen from another residence.  While officers were searching the house, a 16-year-old male and a 15-year-old male began to be combative with the officers.  The 15 year-old began shouting gang related statements and attempted to coerce others to fight the officers.  They were taken into custody after a brief struggle.

Other officers observed the rear door to 92 Westcliff Circle had been kicked in.  The television found inside the apartment was identified as being the stolen property from the residence. 

The 15 & 16-year-old males were arrested and charged in connection with this incident.

15 year old (male, Warner Robins) was charged with Burglary – 1st Degree, Participation in Criminal Street Gang, and Obstruction of Officer.

16 year old (male, Warner Robins) was charged with Burglary – 1st Degree.

The juveniles were transferred into the custody of the Houston County Sheriff’s Office Juvenile Division.  Both males have an extensive arrest history.     

The 15 year old male was also charged with Theft By Receiving Stolen Property in connection with an April 15th burglary at 204 Westcliff Circle where the Nintendo Wii was stolen.
