Two juveniles arrested in South Point break-in

SOUTH POINT — Two juveniles have been arrested in connection with the July 3 break-in at The Food Basket convenience store in South Point.

The 16-year-old boys from the Burlington area were each charged with fifth-degree felony breaking and entering and were taken to the Dennis J. Boll Group and Shelter Home.
