In Maplewood a caller reported that at 11am two olfer male teens knocked on thei homeowners doors...one teen was at the back door and the other was at the front. When one of the homeowners who looked out of the window was seen by one of the males, the suspects ran to a black older model car. There were two other people observed to be waiting in the car. This appears to be a B&E waiting to happen. Please keep in mind during patrols.
