Two juveniles were arrested Thursday morning: A 17-year-old on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and violating a juvenile charge of health, welfare and morals, and a 14-year-old on charges of juvenile runaway and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The two boys were seen looking into vehicles and trying to open car doors in a parking lot on the southside of the Student Recreation Center around 8 a.m., police said.

When police approached them, they attempted to walk away from the scene. Police yelled at the boys to stop and they turned around, acting "very nervous," police said. The boys then told police they were doing nothing wrong.

Police noticed both boys were wearing gloves. When asked why, the boys responded that they were cold, police said.

During a routine pat-down, Police found a ratchet set on the 17-year-old, and a screwdriver, flashlight and wirecutters in the pockets of the 14-year-old, police said.

The boys told police they had the items because they "like to fix things," police said.

Police also found pipes commonly used to smoke marijuana in both boys' pockets.

During a routine check, police discovered the 14-year-old was listed as a juvenile runaway, police said.

Both boys were booked into Pima County Juvenile Detention Center.
