Perry Police arrested two juvenile males Tuesday on charges stemming from the Jan. 28 burglary at the Blue Jay Market at 2810 Willis Ave.

The two Perry boys, age 16 and 15, were charged with third-degree burglary and third-degree criminal mischief, according to a statement released Thursday morning by the Perry Police Department.

The 16-year-old was also charged with possession of marijuana after a search of his vehicle. He was later transported to a juvenile detention facility, police said. The younger boy was released to the custody of his parents.

Video surveillance caught images of the young burglars entering the store and stealing liquor and e-cigarette items after breaking the front window. The window was valued at $400.

The statement said Perry Police officers developed information identifying the possible suspects over the weekend and found property from the Blue Jay Market Monday that linked the suspects to the incident.

Clothing worn during the incident was also identified, police said.
