The pair then allegedly walked over to a parked car in a home driveway, but quickly ran away when they spotted officers. Moore allegedly removed gloves from his hands and tossed them in a gutter on the 1300 block of Alameda Avenue.
Police stopped the pair, who claimed they were headed to a friend’s home, but couldn’t recall the address, according to reports.
As police talked to them, the boy removed a pair of socks that were covering his hands. The boy allegedly told police he was wearing the socks because he was cold, but police noticed he was “sweating profusely.”
The boy was also carrying a backpack, which police said was emitting a strong odor of marijuana.
Officers discovered two bottles of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, bolt cutters and a purple bandana inside his backpack, according to reports. They also found a Verizon flip phone; phone charger; women’s perfume bottle; car freshener; “Angry Birds” game phone case; pocket knife; cassette adapter and a portable navigation system inside the backpack, police said.
Officers used addresses saved on the navigation device to track down the homes in Burbank that were allegedly burglarized, according to police.
