Nogales police arrested two teenagers suspected of burglarizing several businesses.

Police say a 14 and 15-year-old broke into four establishments through rooftops in the first two weeks of November. In one instance, they stole $2,000 from a cash register.

Police made the arrests Saturday night with the help of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which allegedly caught the teens in the act of trying to break into another business. 

The suspects face charges of two counts of third-degree burglary and criminal damage. One of the teens was also charged with marijuana possession.
