UPDATE: Suspects arrested in Stonemill Farms burglaries

Two juveniles were arrested this week in connection with a series of daylight burglaries in Woodbury.

The suspects, male teenagers from Woodbury, were arrested on suspicion of burglary.

The boys were linked to five residential burglaries in the Stonemill Farms neighborhood and at least five thefts from automobiles since June 10, according to Michelle Okada, public information officer for the Woodbury Public Safety Department.

Residents were home in at least two of the incidents.

“Residents should use this as a good reminder to close garage doors, lock doors, and don’t leave keys and personal items in your vehicle,” she said in a news release.
