Three boys were arrested for a burglary incident stemming from a break-in Wednesday in the 1400 block of Blacks Lane.

Morgan County Deputies arrested two 17-year-olds and a 15-year-old, who were booked at the Morgan County Jail between 2:15 and 3:15 p.m. yesterday.

Authorities say they broke into an unoccupied house and stole scrap metal. The boys were all arrested for burglary, criminal damage to property and criminal trespass to land.

The two 17-year-olds, from Jacksonville, and the 15-year-old, from Woodson, have been released into the custody of their parents.
