Two Valdosta teens caught burglarizing business


Two Valdosta teenagers are charged with burglarizing a business after they were caught leaving the scene Sunday night.

Police say around 11:30 p.m., a 15 and 14-year-old broke into On The Way Tax Services on Force Street and stole four TV's and a few cell phones. Police say a witness spotted the teens hide the items behind a home and in some bushes. Police caught the suspects riding their bikes not far from the business.

"We're very thankful that people take the time to let us know that stuff like this is going on, because without the witnesses we may have never found them," said Lt. Aaron Kirk, Valdosta Police Department.

The teens are charged with burglary and possession of tools during the commission of a crime. They remain at the regional youth detention center.
