COVENTRY, CT (AP) -

Two teens have been charged with breaking into a Connecticut convenience store after police found them in a dumpster behind a Dunkin' Donuts.

An 18-year-old woman and a 15-year-old boy were charged with criminal attempt to commit burglary and criminal mischief Wednesday morning.

Police responded to a burglary alarm at On The Go in Coventry on Wednesday and found a shattered plate glass window.

Police say they knew what the burglars looked like after watching surveillance footage. Police then saw two suspicious people matching descriptions of the burglars at a Dunkin' Donuts. Police say they fled, but were found in a dumpster behind the building.

They have been released and are due back in court.
