MOUNT AUBURN, OH (FOX19) -

People who live on Dorsey Street in Mount Auburn say they love their quiet area, beautiful homes, and fantastic views of the city. But neighbors say teen crooks ransacked a few homes July 5.

Robert Blair says everything was kicked and knocked around in his home.

"It was like somebody came through and ransacked it -- (stuff) was scattered all over," he said. "They came through the back."

Amazingly, after going through his home, he said the crooks only took two things.

"I guess they were just going around they didn't have nothing else better to do. That's what they were doing was ransacking seeing who's stuff they could get into," he said.

A police report says the squad hit another house on the block. Penny Carnes saw the teens getting arrested.

"I saw my neighbors and the police over there, and they had broken in their window and took stuff out the window and out the back. And then I saw later on when the police came back they had three young kids in there, 12 and 14 -- two 12-year-olds and a 14-year-old," said Carnes.

Police have not confirmed those ages.

It would appear the young men learned their lesson about breaking into homes.

"Oh, they were scared to death in the police car. They were putting them in the back, and they were shaken in their little shoes," Carnes said.

Carnes and Blair said police told them three of the teens were taken to the Juvenile Detention Center while a fourth young man is still out there.
