Dispatcher tells child to lock himself in bedroom; PAPD catches suspected burglars

PORT ARTHUR - by Scott Lawrence

A 911 dispatcher told a child to lock himself in his bedroom after the boy called to report hearing noises coming from the back of his home, and the call led to a chase and the arrest of two suspected intruders.

Port Arthur Police say a 12-year-old boy called 911 at about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday to report hearing noises coming from the back of his home in the 5100 block of Minnie Street. A dispatcher told the boy to lock himself in his bedroom and wait for officers. A few minutes later the child said it sounded as if someone had come inside the home and was waiting outside his bedroom.

Police arrived and saw one suspect looking out of a window. The suspect saw officers and ran from the home, along with a second suspect.

Port Arthur officers chased the men along a canal bank and into a wooded area. Two K-9's and their handlers tracked the suspects about 1/4 mile away and found one man hiding under a home. The other K-9 and his handler tracked the second suspect to a home and found him inside.

Police arrested the 20 and 22-year-old suspects from Port Arthur and booked them into the Jefferson County Jail on charges of Burglary of a Habitation.
