On December 25 at 12:26 a.m., patrol officers responded to an intrusion alarm at a business located in the 4500 block of Crain Highway in White Plains. Upon arrival, officers observed a teenager inside the main entrance of the business; he was in the process of cutting a lock to gain further access inside. The suspect, a 14-year-old male, immediately surrendered when he observed officers. He was charged with burglary and released to an adult relative. Officer J. Burbank is investigating.
