Two boys from Corner Brook, one 14 and the other 15, were arrested for breaking into vehicles on the Comfort Inn parking lot early Tuesday morning.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary received a complaint from the Comfort Inn on Confederation Drive at 1:35 a.m. Upon arrival, police were able to apprehend the 15-year-old, but the other boy escaped into a nearby wooded area.

The RCMP police dog was called in to assist in the search and the boy was located hiding behind a residence about one-kilometre away.

Upon identifying the boy, police learned he was the same person who was the focus of a search earlier Monday night.

At 10:05 p.m. the RNC had been notified that the boy had breached a court order by failing to comply with his curfew.

The 14-year-old was arrested for several breaches of his court order, theft under $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime. He is being held in police custody for a court appearance.

The 15-year-old was charged with theft under $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime. He was released to the custody of an adult relative and will appear in court at a later date.
