Two 18-year-old men were arrested Monday morning after Colorado Springs police said they were caught lurking in a neighborhood, breaking into vehicles and trying to enter a residence.
Markeice Bellamy and Van Wilson were arrested about 1:30 a.m. near the 9000 block of Stony Creek Drive, east of Powers Boulevard and off Research Parkway, on suspicion of burglary and booked into the El Paso County jail, records show.
A resident reported seeing two men walking around the neighborhood, looking into vehicles and removing items around 12:45 a.m. Officers spotted them soon after as they tried to run through backyards away from the area, police said.
One of the teens was caught hiding under a car and the second teen was in some nearby bushes.
Police allege Bellamy and Wilson had broken into at least one vehicle, stealing items inside, and one home where the garage window screen had been cut open.
