Two thieves were arrested early Saturday morning after a citizen alerted Fresno police to the sound of glass breaking at Teague Elementary School west of Highway 99, police said.

Sgt. Brandi Phebus said officers arrested Julian Gonzalez, 22, and Gilbert Montano, 20, who had four stolen laptops and chargers in their backpack, police said. Police arriving just before 1:30 a.m. found a broken window to the room where the items were stolen, and Montano had broken pieces of glass still on his sweatshirt, according to police. Gonzalez was found to be on probation for a prior burglary.

Both men were arrested on suspicion of burglary and possession of stolen property.
