One juvenile is in custody following the 3-hour search for two suspects who burglarized a home at 70 Seabrook Rd earlier Friday morning.

At approximately 9am, deputies responded to a report of a burglary in progress at 70 Seabrook Rd, Lot #31. The victim told officers that two unknown black males had just broken a window and entered her home. The victim locked herself in a bedroom where she was able to contact law enforcement.

As deputies were responding to the scene, two black male subjects were seen running from the area towards Detour Rd.

A perimeter has been established in the area of Seabrook Rd and Detour Rd. Members of the Sheriff's Office K9 Tracking Team are actively tracking the suspects, who have been spotted running in the woods in the area several times.

The Whale Branch High School has been placed on lockdown as the search continues.

Both suspects are described as young, black males. One was seen wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and black shorts. The other was seen wearing a black shirt and camouflage pants.

It is unknown at this time if the suspects were successful in stealing any items from the residence.

Area residents are asked to stay inside their homes and immediately contact 911 should these individuals be observed in the area.
