MANATEE -- Two juvenile burglary suspects were arrested early Thursday after deputies spotted them breaking into a Parrish business, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. One of the suspects was arrested after a deputy stopped his escape by shooting him with a Taser.
Deputies had set up surveillance on Brown's Grove Farm Market, 12255 U.S. 301 N., after three burglaries there in the past two weeks, according to a news release.
About 1:30 a.m., deputies spotted the suspects drive into the area and climb into the business. After about 10 minutes, the pair left the business just as deputies were setting up a perimeter.
When they saw the deputies, the suspects ran into a field and tried to hide underneath a tree, where "they abandoned their loot," the report states.

One suspect surrendered, but the other continued to run. As he attempted to scale a fence, a deputy shot him with a Taser.
Both suspects were charged with burglary and taken to the Juvenile Booking Facility.
