ODESSA – Two teens are facing charges after an incident on Wednesday morning in Odessa.

Officers were called out to the 1400 block of Patton Street in reference to a gray 1998 Jeep Cherokee that had been burglarized.

As officers were heading to the scene, they spotted two people matching the suspect's description in the 2200 block of Walnut Street. When the suspects saw the officers, they turned around and began walking through a yard into a dark area.

The two subjects were identified as 18-year-old Michael Anthony Spitzer and 18-year-old April Aliyah Garcia.

While officers were searching Spitzer, officers found two credit cards in his pocket that didn't belong to Spitzer.

The owner of the Jeep identified the pair as the suspects involved in the burglary.

We're told Spitzer and Garcia had stolen credit cards, identification cards, social security cards and other items.

Officials say Garcia admitted to burglarizing several vehicles.

Officers were also able to trace some of the stolen items to a vehicle in the 3500 block of Fairlane. Those items were returned to their owners.

Spitzer and Garcia are both facing two charges of burglary of a vehicle.
