Johnson City police arrested two teenagers Wednesday following an investigation into vehicle burglaries.

The arrests came after officers investigated incidents in the Tree Streets area. Michael B. Duncan, 18, 617 Hamilton St., and a 17-year boy were both charged with two counts each of burglary of a motor vehicle.

According to a Johnson City Police Department news release, Duncan and the boy were located in the immediate area of the burglary and one of them possessed items from a burglarized vehicle.
