ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Two teens were in police custody Wednesday after nosy neighbors thwarted a burglary in east Albany.

Police were called to 716 Cantrell Lane in the East town subdivision just before 1:30 PM Wednesday afternoon after a neighbor spotted the 15 and 16-year old boys on the back porch with a handgun.

The neighbor called the home owner who confronted the teens. They ran and showed the gun to the home owner but never pointed it at anyone.

Police searched the neighborhood and eventually caught the suspects. They're charged with simple assault and burglary.
