Five suspects, including four teens, are facing a slew of charges in connection with a burglary on Mount Lemmon.
On Jan. 13, Pima County sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call about a break in at a home in the 11300 block of East Bisbee Avenue around 1:30 p.m, Deputy Tom Peine, a spokesman for the sheriff’s department said in a news release.
About 30 minutes later, a deputy at the base of the mountain stopped a suspicious car with several males in it and found items missing from the burglarized home when the car was searched, the release said.
Marijuana was found in the car and the driver was driving under the influence, the release said.
Evidence found at the home linked the suspects to the crime.
All five suspects were arrested on suspicion of second degree burglary.
Deputies arrested a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old and one of them is facing a charge for possession of marijuana for sale and the other had a warrant for a probation violation.
