Pair were arrested following break-in at an address in Eton Avenue

Two schoolboys have admitted carrying out a burglary at a house in Wembley.

The 13 and 15-year-old were arrested after police were called to an address in Eton Avenue, on October 29 last year.

One was held at the property and the other was apprehended following a police chase on foot.

Both pleaded guilty to burglary and were sentenced to an eight month referral order and ordered to pay £30 costs at Willesden Youth Court.

Inspector Rachel Walmsley from Brent Police said: “This is an excellent example of team work which resulted in two very good burglary charges and the recovery of the victim’s property.”
