A Fashion Faux Pas leads to the arrest of teenage burglary suspects

A fashion faux pas has led to the arrest of two teenage burglary suspects, according to Milwaukee Police.  The two were arrested near the scene of the crime wearing the very clothes they had stolen from a business just hours before.  According to a news release, at 10:15 a.m., officers investigated a burglary at The Shops of Grand Avenue on September 23.  The suspects were seen on a surveillance video breaking into the business and taking several items of clothing.  About two hours later, the owner of the store saw the suspects inside the mall and pointed them out to officers.  According to the police, both suspects were wearing the jeans taken from the store earlier in the day and they also matched the suspects appearing on the video.  A 14-year-old male and 16-year-old male were taken into custody, and according to the police, admitted to their role in the burglary.  Police are looking for a third suspect.
