Franklin Township business burglarized twice in same night; 3 boys in custody

Three boys have been arrested after breaking into the same business twice overnight Sunday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Three boys have been arrested after breaking into the same business twice overnight Sunday.

The break-ins happened at the Vapor Vice on Thompson Road in Franklin Township.

Owner TJ Birdwell said he first received a call around 1 a.m. that his store had been burglarized.

Surveillance video showed three people smashing through a glass door and stealing products off the shelf.

Police responded and Birdwell stayed around to secure and board up his store.

"I think we stayed here till around 4:20, and we left, and within 10 minutes it was hit again," said Birdwell.

The burglars pulled off the plywood and re-entered through the same door once everyone had left.

This time Birdwell said they took a lot more product the second time and ran off.

"It's hard, I mean you feel violated to a degree," said Birdwell.

The store posted video of the break-in on their social media pages.

Several hours later Birdwell said police told him three suspects were in custody.

According to an IMPD report, the suspects range in age from 12 to 15 years old. WTHR is not naming the suspects because they are juveniles.
