Watertown Daily Times

WATERTOWN  Two teenage girls face burglary charges after they allegedly broke into the Leray Street Dairy Market early Wednesday morning.

Detective Lt. Joseph R. Donoghue Sr. said the two 14-year-old girls entered through a door and stole merchandise.

Police responded to the convenience store, 616 LeRay St., after an alarm activation at about 12:30 a.m.

The teens, whose names were not released because of their age, were found hiding in some nearby trees. They fled on foot, but were then caught after a short chase.

They were identified as 14-year-old female runaways. Both were brought to the Metro-Jeff Public Safety Building, where they were reunited with family members.

Both girls were charged with third-degree burglary and petit larceny. They were referred to Jefferson County Family Court.

The owner reported less than $175 in merchandise was stolen from the store, police said. The items were recovered.
