Three teens have been arrested after they were caught on surveillance video trying to break into homes in eastern Colorado Springs, according to the sheriff’s office. 

Deputies said around 4:20 a.m. Monday, they got a call about a teen trying to break into a home on Rocklin Drive. Deputies said the boy checked to see if the door was locked, heard a dog barking, and then left on foot with two other people who were waiting by the street. The home’s security system captured the incident. 

Then, around 7:30 a.m., deputies got a call about three teens trying to break into homes in the area of Constitution Avenue and Piros Drive, just a few blocks away. That incident was also captured on surveillance video, according to the sheriff’s office. 

Deputies, working with Colorado Springs police, were able to identify all three suspects. They were all arrested on attempted first-degree burglary charges. Since they are juveniles, their names will not be released.
