Whitehouse Police say a resident on the1600 block of Waterton Circle caught two burglary suspects entering his garage Saturday morning.
Whitehouse Police have linked a Whitehouse teen and a 20-year-old man to the burglaries. 18-year old Justin Miller and 20-year old Kenneth McCarrol were arrested for two counts of burglary of a habitation, and nine counts of burglarizing a motor vehicle.
Police say the burglary spree started Monday night when the two suspects cleaned out a car. Whitehouse Police believe the burglars accumulated about $5,000 dollars worth of stolen items.
Investigators were surprised to find the burglars were stealing inexpensive items like a boat cover, a fishing net, even Cliff's Notes. The burglars, however, also took pricier items like a lap-top computer, a stereo and speakers.
"You can really definitely feel like these kinds of crimes were because of the thrill of it," said Officer Mike Gromatzky with Whitehouse Police Department.
