NEOSHO, Mo. — Five teens were charged Monday in connection with a burglary early Saturday at a Neosho business. Police said they were aided in making the arrests by information from an eyewitness.

An eyewitness called 911 and reported seeing teens breaking the front glass of the business. The eyewitness provided police with a vehicle description and a direction of travel.

Responding to the dispatch, Officer Rodney Howe soon located the vehicle. Howe maintained sight of the vehicle until Officer James Francis arrived to assist.
