Two teenagers are in custody after police say they broke into a school in southwest Houston.

Police said the teens broke into Dowling Middle School around 3 a.m. Wednesday. Police were responding to an alarm at the school when they spotted three juveniles trying to steal computers and equipment.

Two of them were caught and arrested in the school yard, police said. The third jumped a fence and got away.

Police said the kids' ages range from 13 to 15 years old.

Officers say the teens were caught on surveillance video inside the school. They hope it will lead to a third arrest.
