The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office arrested two teens Wednesday in connection with attempted burglary and obstruction.
Deputies responded just before 8:00 p.m. to 99 Center Road in Venice for a report of two people seen on surveillance video attempting to pry open the door to the caller’s warehouse. Deputies arrived and quickly set up a perimeter before the suspects fled northbound through a field on foot. With assistance from the Aviation Unit and K9, the suspects, identified as Gabriel Sudharto, DOB 07/29/99, and Richard Short, DOB 08/31/00, were located in the nearby tree line and arrested.
Sudharto is charged with Attempted Burglary of an Unoccupied Structure and Obstruction without Violence. He was released Thursday on $2,000 bond. Short is charged with Attempted Burglary of an Unoccupied Structure and Possession of Burglary Tools. He was released Wednesday to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
