MANATEE COUNTY - Two Manatee County teens face charges after they were caught breaking into a school over the weekend.

Manatee County Sheriff's Deputies say the teens were caught trying to steal laptop computers from inside Harllee Middle School on Saturday.

Just after 10 pm on Saturday, a school security guard called to report a burglary in progress. When deputies got there, the teens ages 17 and 14 ran away, but a K-9 deputy tracked them down.

Both were taken to a juvenile assessment center and charged with burglary.
