Two teenagers were behind bars Wednesday night on a burglary of a habitation charge after witnesses alerted police to suspicious activity in their neighborhood.

Bryan police responded to the 3300 block of Augusta Drive on Wednesday just before 2 p.m. and were able to initiate a traffic stop on a vehicle based on the witnesses' description.

After questioning the occupants of the vehicle about a possible burglary in the area, police arrested Derek Emmanuel Smith, 19, of Hearne, and Terry Lyn Guyton, 17, of Bryan.

About $10,000 worth of property stolen from a nearby home was recovered from their vehicle, police said. Items recovered included a rare coin collection, three laptops and game consoles.

Burglary of a habitation is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years behind bars and a $10,000 fine.

The teens were being held in the Brazos County Jail, and bail had not been set for either Wednesday night.
