Two teenagers were arrested in connection with 11 business burglaries around El Paso.

The duo was caught on March 26 by TAC officers at the El Paso Police Department’s Pebble Hills, Westside and Mission Valley Regional Command Centers.

Police say Brian Ramirez, 17, and a 15-year-old juvenile are responsible for a series of robberies from March 9 to March 26.

The robberies were “smash and grabs,” with the suspects breaking a front window, entering and taking money or other property. 

A black four-door car was captured on video by security cameras during one of the burglaries in West El Paso.

Officers spotted the car in the Lower Valley on March 26 and followed it before doing a traffic stop for a violation.

Stolen property was found inside the vehicle from various burglaries. The two teens were arrested and TAC officers found one of the teens had a stolen cell phone from one of the burglaries.

Ramirez is facing four counts of burglary of a business. He was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility under $35,000 worth of bonds. 

The 15-year-old is facing five burglary of business charges and was turned over to the Juvenile Probation Department. 

The 11 cases have been cleared but more charges are expected to be filed against the two teens. Once those charges are filed, a list of the businesses is expected to be released.
