Five Los Alamos juveniles and a youth from Jemez Springs were charged with burglary Wednesday in connection with break-ins reported at three homes on North Road.
Los Alamos Deputy Police Chief Kevin Purtymun said the suspects included two 14, two 15 and two 16-year-old boys.
“They split into teams of two and knocked on doors to see if anyone was home,” Purtymun said.
The youth took off running after knocking on a door in which a woman answered and threatened to call police. The youth were caught at 1:40 p.m., shortly after police began receiving burglary reports from the area. The teenagers were referred to the juvenile probation officer.
