An 11-year-old girl and 10-year-old boy were picked up by Snow Hill police Tuesday after a break-in at a residence in town, according to The Kinston Free Press.
The investigation began for authorities on Greenridge Road Tuesday. Authorities were looking into a report of an activated alarm at the residence, according to the article.
A police officer reported he saw a boy running from the back of the house into the woods, Police Chief John Rae said.
Two Razor kick scooters were laying in the yard, and deputies placed them into a patrol car.
The article reported, a window at the back of the house was broken and the security alarm was ripped off the wall.
Not too long after that a neighbor reported someone had broken into her car. She also noticed things had been misplaced.
It did not appear anything had been taken from either location, except possibly a small amount of change from the car.
The Kinston Free Press published the story Wednesday.
