HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. - A 16-year-old and a 17-year-old were arrested after they were spotted by officers allegedly committing burglaries.
An official with the Hendersonville Police Department was patrolling in the 1000 block of West Main Street Saturday and interrupted two burglaries in progress.
One of the teens was detained by the officer. The second suspect ran to a vehicle nearby and fled from the scene.
