Two teenage boys are in custody after police say they caught them burglarizing a home in Wilmington.

Officers descended on the 1900 block Sycamore Street at 10:35 a.m. Monday after a passerby saw two boys trying to break into a home and called police.

As police pulled up to the house, one of the officers saw a teenage boy trying to climb out of a window. Police say when the boy saw police he climbed back inside.

The officer then climbed in the window himself to let other officers in.

Police say the two burglars, ages 16 and 17, were sitting on the living room couch waiting to surrender.

They were in police custody Monday night. Charges and bail were pending.
