BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Police who rushed to the scene of a burglary in progress Wednesday caught two people wandering around inside the home and arrested them both.
The incident happened at about 7 a.m. in the 800 block of Northwest Fourth Avenue.
When officers arrived, they found both the front and back doors open, and saw the two burglars. One was wearing a black hoodie with black gloves while the other wore a T-shirt and latex gloves.
Police ordered both people out of the house.
One of the burglars was a juvenile whose name was not released, and police identified the other as Franklin Mendoza, 18.

Finally, Mendoza said "I was caught with my hands in the cookie jar."
