Police have charged the teens accused of breaking into a Wallingford home Tuesday morning.

Chrisitan Lugo, 18, of South Main Street in Wallingford, and Raymond E. Cuevas, 19, of Mills Street in Meriden, were arrested late Tuesday morning after a resident of Pogmore Drive in Wallingford called police to say her home had been burglarized.

Investigators arrived at the home to find that one suspect had left through a sliding glass door in the kitchen and the other jumped from a second-floor window. Both ran east through the woods toward Interstate 91, police said.

Lugo was found walking on Harrison Road and taken into police custody. Authorities then set up a perimeter from Harrison Road to Pond Hill Road and I-91, police said.

They found Cuevas within that perimeter and took him into custody as well.

Both teens were charged with second-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit second-degree burglary, second-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit second-degree larceny.

They’re being held on $50,000 bonds and are due in court May 13.

It's not clear if anything was stolen during the burglary.
