>Four teens arrested at scene of crimes

Four West Seneca teenagers have been arrested on felony burglary charges after returning to the scene of their crime one too many times, Cattaraugus County sheriff's deputies said.

Following burglaries and thefts from Lambert's junkyard in Machias on the nights of Nov. 4 and 5, the owner waited in the yard for the thieves to return on the night of Nov. 6.

When they did, he called Cattaraugus County sheriff's deputies, who apprehended the four teens, who are 17, 18 and 19. Sheriff's officials withheld their names because they could be eligible for youthful-offender status.

The four are accused of stealing numerous items, including a car, radiators, alternators and catalytic converters -- most of which were sold for scrap.

Sheriff's officials said more charges may be filed.
