HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) – Two Miramar teens were arrested after they reportedly burglarized a Hollywood home that was being fumigated for termites.
Sunday around 3 a.m., police received a call about several people breaking into a residence at 1200 Harrison Street which had been tented by a pest control company.
When officers arrived, police said they saw two people run from the area around the home.
A perimeter was set up and 19-year old Robert Taylor and a 16-year old were taken into custody. In interviewing the teens, police were led to believe that there was a third person involved and they may still be inside the home.
Wearing gear to protect them from the potentially deadly gas which may have still been inside residence, Hollywood firefighters did a room by room search and came up empty. Police said they know the name of third person but he is not in custody.
Both Taylor and the 16-year old were charged with burglary and resisting arrest without violence.
Police said several gold coins and money taken from the house were recovered and returned to their owner.
