Two men were arrested Wednesday after police said they attempted to burglarize a home in Lodi.

At approximately 10:30 a.m., Lodi police responded to an anonymous tip that two men had entered a home on the 1000 block of South Garfield Street through a window, according to Sgt. Doug Chinn of the Lodi Police Department.

Chinn said police arrived on scene just as the two men were attempting to leave the home with electronics.

Both suspects attempted to flee the scene out of the home's back door, Chinn said.

Police apprehended one of the suspects, 19-year-old Anthony Rivas, just outside of the residence. But the second suspect jumped a neighboring fence, according to Chinn.

Chinn said police were told by neighbors who witnessed the second suspect escape where he could be found.

Police were able to surround a home on Maple Street, just kitty-corner to the home they say the men attempted to burglarize. Eventually, the second burglary suspect, a male juvenile, was found and was also arrested.

Both suspects face burglary charges, according to police.

This attempted burglary fits a pattern Lodi police are seeing recently throughout the city.

Burglaries, particularly those involving vehicles, are becoming more frequent in Lodi, and police are dealing daily with reports of a resident's home or a resident's car being broken into.

Police have asked that anyone with information on a burglary or a robbery to call the Lodi Police Department at 209-333-6727 or Lodi Area Crime Stoppers at 209-333-6771.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
