A couple of teenagers suspected of a burglary spree on Tallahassee's east side are under arrest.

According to the Leon County Sheriff's Office, a man who lives off Lompoc Court came home to find his home burglarized and when he heard dogs barking outside, he realized the culprits weren't far away.

Two teenagers were tracked through the woods and arrested and deputies say that was just the beginning.

"We have so far five burglaries reported. They have not been charged with all of those burglaries yet. We're awaiting fingerprint analysis, DNA analysis, things like that on some of them, but further charges are pending," said LCSO SGT Larry Folsom.

Fifteen-year-old Dillon Dunston and 16-year-old Alex Payne are each facing six felonies, including armed burglary and grand theft.
