Neighbors keeping an eye out for each other have helped College Station Police arrest another pair of suspected thieves.
Police say they arrested two men after they tried to break into one vehicle and stole property from another early Friday.
Twenty-year-old Michael Antonio Selio of Woodlands and 19 year old Jordan Levi Leason of Houston were each charged with burglary of a vehicle and criminal attempt burglary of a vehicle.
Selio was also charged with driving under the influence and failure to identify. He bonded out before being transferred to the Brazos County Jail. Leason had an additional charge of possession of
another person's drivers license.
Officers responded to the 3500 block of Treeline Drive around 2 Friday morning after a report of vehicle burglaries.
Sgt. James Arnold says when officers arrived on the scene, they saw a vehicle matching the description of the burglars' vehicle attempting to leave the apartment complex and pulled it over.
