SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Five people were arrested early Monday morning after breaking into a Shreveport convenience store.

Shreveport police officers responded to the Triple J in the 4100 block of Hearne avenue just before 3:00 a.m.  Investigators found the front glass broken and observed a group of suspects running from the business.  Five people, including two juveniles, were arrested following a brief foot chase.

Arrested were Vernon Wynn III, 18, of Shreveport; Zues Adger, 18, of Shreveport; Marquis Claville, 18, of Shreveport; and two juveniles, ages 16 and 17.  All are charged with simple burglary.

Investigators say one of the men used a foreign object and threw it through a window, prompting the others to do the same.

Police confiscated a duffel bag full of items that had been taken from the business. 

This is the third break-in at the convenience store in recent weeks.
