Cops Chase Down Package-Stealing Teens In Mt. Baker

Police arrested two teenagers around noon Wednesday for stealing a package from the front step of a Mt. Baker home.

The homeowner told police one of the teens knocked on the door of his home, located in the 2800 block of 32nd Avenue South. The homeowner called 911 after he peeked out his windows to see one boy at the door, while the other nervously paced the sidewalk.

Arriving officers saw two boys, ages 15 and 16, running down a nearby street and detained them. One of the boys confessed he took a package from the front step, opened it in the back yard and stole a charger inside. Officers found the charger, still in its packaging, in his jacket pocket. The Youth Services Center did not book the suspect, so officers released him after contacting his mother.

The other teen had a juvenile felony warrant and was booked into the Youth Services Center.
