A 21-year-old Sulphur man and a 15-year-old juvenile have been arrested on burglary and theft charges, authorities said.

Moments later, deputies located Ashworth and the juvenile close to the home. When questioned, Ashworth and the juvenile confirmed they burglarized the home and stole an undisclosed amount of cash."
