ELGIN — A tip from a resident led to the arrest of two teenagers on attempted burglary charges, police said.

According to reports, officers responded to a call from a resident in the 300 block of Jefferson Street on Wednesday afternoon reporting that two males were trying to open windows on a house. As officers arrived, the two suspects ran, but police were able to apprehend them three blocks away, police said.

A subsequent investigation revealed that the two suspects — Florentino Bucio, 17, of the 400 block Congdon Avenue, Elgin, and a 16-year-old boy — had been trying to enter through a first-floor window to the Jefferson Street house, police said.

The case was reviewed by the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office, and the juvenile was charged with one count of attempted residential burglary. He was transported to the Kane County Youth Home to be detained until a hearing before a judge.

Bucio was charged with one count of attempted residential burglary. Bucio appeared in bond court Thursday, and his bond was set at $15,000.

Police said they were still trying to determine if items were stolen or damaged at other residences in the area.
