The police responded immediately, and found the house the resident described, according to the Menlo Park Police Department. Hearing noises inside and seeing that the front door had been forced open, an officer set perimeters around the home.
Both suspects were apprehended without incident, police said.
The boys were found in possession of items taken from the home, police said. They were identified as residents of East Palo Alto and booked into Hillcrest Juvenile Hall on suspicion of residential burglary and conspiracy.
