Four teens are facing charges after police say they went on a burglary spree in Sugar Land.
Police said Joseph Cantu, 17, and three juveniles were arrested on March 22 after they broke into a home in the 14100 block of Anson and tried to burglarize two others nearby.
A resident of one of the homes said she heard her doorbell ring, so she went to an upstairs window to see who it was. When she looked outside, she said she saw a group of people trying to force their way into her house, so she called 911.
Police said three of the teens have since admitted to participating in five other Sugar Land burglaries, most of which occurred north of Highway 90A on March 10 and 12.
In each case, police said the teens targeted homes in the afternoon when residents were likely at work. Investigators said the teens rang the doorbell, and if no one answered, they forced entry through the back of the homes.
Police said a surveillance camera at one of the houses caught the suspects in the act.
Cantu and the three other teens have each been charged with one count of residential burglary and two counts of attempted residential burglary.
The three other suspects are 15 or 16 years old, police said.
