Detectives investigating an unrelated incident nearby responded to a call of a burglary, police said. Other officers from the 16th District arrived to the scene and helped arrest two suspects.

Two boys, ages 15 and 16, face two counts each of burglary and possession of burglary tools, police said. They were expected to appear in juvenile court.
