Omaha Police say the pair was wanted for buglaries in Omaha and LaVista
Omaha Police Lt. Staci Witkowski says just after one o'clock Monday afternoon officers tried to stop a vehicle near 19th and H Street that matched the one used in several burglaries.
The pair jumped out of the car and ran into a nearby neighborhood. Witkowski says both suspects split up and two perimeters were set up in the area of 16th and J Streets.
Witkowski says as they ran away, the suspects tossed a backpack and other potential stolen items. Several stolen items were also recovered from the vehicle.
Officers searching the area with dogs found the suspects hiding in the backyard of two separate homes. During the search, nearby Spring Lake Elementary School was on "lock out", meaning all doors to the school were locked.
