Police responded to a burglary in the 2800 block of South Custer, southwest of Pawnee and Meridian, close to midnight on Sunday.
A mother and daughter returned home to find two men inside their house in the process of stealing items such as electronics, Lt. Doug Nolte said.
The suspects fled on foot with a red duffel bag and left behind a car, police said.
Later, a 21-year-old woman came to pick up the car. When police stopped her, they determined it was one of the suspects’ cars. The woman, who was not involved in the robbery, was cooperative and took officers back to her apartment, where police arrested two 19-year-old men and recovered items belonging to the victims, police said.
Among the recovered items was a camera that the suspects used to take a picture of themselves after the burglary.
