Two arrested for burglary in Racine after neighbor calls to report seeing suspects taking TV, trash bags out of home

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Two people were arrested for a burglary in Racine thanks in part to an astute neighbor.

Kenneth Booker Jr., 19, and Adrian Ager, 18, are now charged with burglary of a building and obstructing an officer.

The burglary happened back in August in the 1400 block of Douglas Avenue.

According to the criminal complaint, a neighbor called police after seeing the suspects leaving a home carrying white trash bags. One of them was also holding a TV. 

When police arrived on scene, the suspects fled.

One of the suspects, later identified as Ager, was arrested while trying to hide in brush in a yard nearby.

Officers located the second suspect, later identified as Booker, walking on the street carrying a white trash bag. When officers attempted to stop him, he ran into the trees near Geneva Street. He was eventually taken into custody as he tried to climb over a fence.

The residents of the home that was burglarized say they believe the suspects entered the home through a window which was open. In addition to the television, the residents said they were also missing socks, shoes, other electronics, and frozen food. 

According to the criminal complaint, there may be other suspects involved but they're not yet charged.
