Teens Caught Inside Dollar Store After Hours

CORPUS CHRISTI - Three teens will spend at least part of their summer break behind bars for a break-in at a dollar store overnight.

According to police, an officer checking out an alarm call at the USA Dollar Store at 3737 Leopard could see someone watching his approach from behind the burglar bars.

The officer went to the back of the store to keep anyone inside from getting away. Police say they could hear banging inside the store as if someone was trying to break out.

A K9 unit called in to search the building found two 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old hiding in a utility room.

All three are being held at the Juvenile Justice Center on burglary charges.
