The area was checked by officers and numerous thefts and burglaries were discovered on Hartwicke Drive, Yarmouth Greenway and Portarligton Lane.
One of the suspects was later identified as a 16-year-old male and he was arrested and taken to the Juvenile Reception Center on a preliminary charge of resisting an officer. The second suspect was identified as a 13-year-old boy whom police were still seeking.
Fitchburg police asks anyone who lives in the affected neighborhood and has security video to review their video and contact police if any suspicious activity is seen.
The first suspect was described as a black male wearing a blue zippered hooded sweatshirt and distressed blue jeans. The second suspect was described as a black male wearing a black jacket, khaki shorts and white shoes.
In addition, Madison spokesman Joel DeSpain said a burglary on Clarendon Court was reported about 4 a.m. Saturday that stemmed from an open window to a car parked in a driveway that gave a burglar access to a garage door opener, and eventually the home.
A female resident reported that her 2016 Honda HR-V and her purse were stolen. The SUV still is missing, but the purse was found inside a different stolen car that was stopped by the State Patrol, DeSpain said.
DeSpain said in Madison there were 19 stolen vehicles in September as of last Friday.
Police reiterated their advice to always lock vehicles and don't leave valuables inside.
