Two teens break into a police chief's house in Sugar Land, Texas. On Feb. 15, MSN reported that the kids were arrested when police responded to the house alarm that the boys set off. The two boys may have not known that the house they attempted to rob belonged to Sugar Land Police Chief Doug Brinkley.
"They just chose my house," Brinkley said. Conner Hinton and Taylor Nuttal, both 17, took out some sections of the fence and forced their way in through a back door. "I wouldn't want to see them end in prison for the rest of their lives, but [unfortunate] that's where they're heading with behavior like this," Brinkley continued.
When teens break into the police chief's house, it is almost karma... perhaps the boys should find a new hobby because breaking and entering doesn't seem to be working for them. Perhaps if the teens did a little research they would have changed their minds about choosing Brinkley's house, but it does not sound like this was a pre-meditated crime.
Ironically, Sugar Land, Texas, was ranked the 20th safest city in America by the CQ Press City Crime Rankings. Since no one was injured and really no harm was done in this incident, the city is more than likely still considered one of the safest places to live.
Isn't it ironic that the teens chose the police chief's house to break into? According to the Huffington Post, both Hinton and Nuttal have been charged with burglary of a habitation.
