The investigation began last week after a Durant police officer stopped a vehicle driven by a juvenile and found lap top computers believed to have been stolen, according to Sheriff's Investigator John Bates.
Durant Police Lt. Sonny Stewart faxed the sheriff's office a copy of the report and Bates and Sheriff's Sgt. Gene West began investigating.
Deputies have taken numerous reports about automobile burglaries recently in the Rolling Wood Hills area near Durant. The juvenile brothers, ages 14 and 15, live near Rolling Wood Hills and both confessed when questioned about the burglaries, according to the sheriff's office.
West said the juveniles stole approximately $15,000 worth of items, including computers, a Taurus .357 magnum revolver, credit cards, checkbooks and cash. Most of the property, including the handgun, has not been recovered.
Both juveniles are being held by juvenile services and, according to the sheriff's office, they are wanted in another state on probation violations.
In other crimes, three juveniles were detained for suspicion of spraying a fire extinguisher atthe Durant Multi-Sports Complex. Durant Police Patrolman Bryan Moore was dispatched to the complex late Tuesday afternoon after Keach Ballard called. According to the report, the juveniles entered a concession stand and sprayed a fire extinguisher that was inside. The three boys were taken into custody and later released to a relative after she signed a form promising that the boys would appear before juvenile services.
