Two teens are arrested after they were found with stolen electrical equipment

NIAGARA FALLS – A 16-year-old male and a juvenile were charged with criminal possession of stolen property after a burglary was reported Wednesday just before midnight from the yard at MGM Electrical Supply in the 2100 block of Fairfield Avenue.

The owner of MGM told police that two males were seen leaving the site pushing a shopping cart with items that may have been stolen from the yard. The owner said the two were followed to an address in the 1600 block of South Avenue where there was a shopping cart in the driveway with three light fixtures valued at $300.

Police interviewed two suspects at the house. They told police they did not enter the enclosed yard on Fairfield Avenue, but had found the stolen property near the railroad tracks.

Police charged the young men with possessing stolen property.
