BRIGANTINE — Two Atlantic City males were arrested Thursday after a homeowner on Ninth Street North reported multiple males on their property about 11 p.m. who ran when confronted and were tracked down by officers, police said.

An officer saw three males in the middle of 12th Street North who matched the homeowner’s description, police said. They ran north across multiple lawns when they saw the officer’s patrol car. Other officers arrived and found two males underneath a deck on 13th Street North, police said.

The two were found “in possession of suspected proceeds of thefts and/or burglaries in the area,” police said.

A 17-year-old boy arrested was wanted on a warrant, police said. He was charged with obstructing the administration of law and was taken to the Harborfields Juvenile Detention Center.

Jonathan Murillo, 19, also was charged with obstruction. He was released on a summons.

Police have seized property they believe to be stolen and ask residents missing items from their homes or cars to call police at 609-266-3545.
