Two Weymouth teens were arrested early Wednesday morning after they allegedly broke into a vehicle on Sterling Street in Braintree.

According to police, officers were called to the scene shortly after 1 a.m. after the vehicle owner observed the youths inside her Ford Mustang that was parked on the street.

The woman told officers that as she approached her vehicle, the two youths got out and walked off in separate directions.

Responding Weymouth and Braintree officers searched the area and found one of the youths on Front Street. The youth made an admission to the officers, including the name of his companion, and called him on his cell phone, police said.

The officers could hear the phone ringing and the second youth emerged from the property of a home at Elliot and Front streets.

When questioned, the second teen admitted to the crime, officers said.

As a result, the teens, ages 15 and 16, were arrested and charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime. Neither of their names have been released as they are juveniles.
