Around 9am deputies found a vehicle matching the description of the suspicious vehicle off of East 9th Street in Alton. Two juvenile occupants were taken into custody, and Dixon says the stolen property was found in the car. The car was also stolen, having been reported as stolen on December 14th from the Fairmount Subdivision in Godfrey. The suspects will be dealt with through the juvenile courts.
