BREWER, Maine — A pair of teenage boys are looking at motor vehicle burglary charges after they broke into several vehicles in Brewer, according to police.

Brewer police Sgt. Arden Jones said the initial call came in at 3:20 a.m. Wednesday that the boys, a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old from Brewer and Bangor, respectively, had been getting into multiple vehicles in the Chamberlain Street area.

When Cpl. Levi Sewall went to investigate, he saw two males approach him who turned out to be the suspects, according to Jones.

The suspects, whose names were not released because they are juveniles, allegedly took spare change from one of the vehicles. Jones said only one vehicle had something missing.

Both boys were taken to the police station and the 15-year-old was released to the custody of his parents, but the 14-year-old, who is on probation, had a probation hold placed on him and was taken to Penobscot County Jail, the sergeant said.

Both were charged with motor vehicle burglary, which is a Class E misdemeanor in this case because none of the vehicles were locked.

Both boys are due in court on June 26.
