    Fremont police officers arrested a pair of burglary suspects accused of breaking into at least two homes early Tuesday.

    Police said that a resident called 911 around 2:30 a.m. to report that someone was breaking into a neighboring house near the intersection of Lake Ontario Drive and Lake Candlewood Street.

    Responding officers found two men fleeing via the roof of the house in question. Officers located one of them and took him into custody.

    Unable to find the second men, officers put up a perimeter and used a chopper and K-9 units to search the area. The suspect was taken into custody around 5 a.m., police said, without disclosing where he was discovered.

    Eight people, including four children ages 4 to 11 years old, were inside one of the houses that was burglarized, according to a family member. They are shaken up, but OK. 

    Officers are still clearing the scene at the house. Police are still piecing together exactly how many houses may have been burglarized.

    Further details were not immediately available. Police are expected to provide an update at 6:30 a.m.

    An investigation is ongoing.
