A juvenile was arrested after breaking into a Boys and Girls Club in Abbeville and attempting to steal several video game consoles, police say.

Abbeville Police spokesman Lt. Jonathan Touchet said the boy was captured after he and another juvenile were seen on the roof of the Boys and Girls Club on A.A. Comeaux Memorial Drive around 3 a.m. Tuesday. The juveniles fled in different directions, and one of the suspects was apprehended.

Officers found a black backpack with two PlayStation 4 systems, an HDMI cord and power adapters. A representative with the Boys and Girls Club confirmed the items came from inside the club, Touchet said.

The juvenile was booked on counts of burglary and curfew violation, and later released to his guardian, the lieutenant said.

The other suspect was also identified as a male juvenile.
