omahapopo(AP) — Authorities say five juveniles are in custody on suspicion of breaking into the home of an Omaha City Council member.

Councilman Garry Gernandt said authorities arrived at his home Monday afternoon after his neighbor reported seeing young people breaking into the property.

Gernandt says the burglars attempted to take his old police gear and loaded guns. He says police arrived at the scene as the suspects were packing up.

Lt. Darci Tierney tells the station that five juveniles are in custody. Additional information about the case has not been released.
