Two teenage boys have been charged with burglarizing vehicles Wednesday night in west suburban St. Charles.

Officers responded about 10:40 p.m. to a call of two boys going into locked car in the 400 block of South 19th Street, according to a statement from St. Charles police.

The officers found two boys in the area, who were subsequently identified by witnesses, police said. The boys claimed to be coming from a friend’s house, but were not able to say the location of the house.

Officers recovered wallets, jewelry, cash, and phone accessories for a car, police said.

The boys, ages 15 and 16, were taken into custody and have each been charged with two counts of burglary from a motor vehicle, a Class 2 felony, police said.

The boys, who are both from St. Charles, were released to their parents and have been referred to Juvenile Court Services.

The St. Charles Police Department is asking anyone in that area who is missing any items from their vehicles to call police at (630) 377-4435. Additional charges may be forthcoming as the investigation into other car burglaries in the area continues.
